Become Part of a Mission-Critical Team

As a “stand-alone” Arizona based 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution, the dollars that we need to raise each year to continue our operations and programs must come from either admissions, program services, memberships, gift shop sales, facility rentals, or private contributions.

Partnering with the Challenger Space Center helps to continue the programs that work with thousands of students to develop the skills that are vital to every professional field. Like no other educational opportunity, Challenger Space Center programs foster science, technology, engineering, and math literacy. Thank you for joining our generous sponsors to help us achieve our mission!
