SUPPORT THE CENTER



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.

Challenger Space Center programs helps thousands of students 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. Through team-building missions and workshops, students develop higher-level critical thinking and communication skills that companies increasingly demand from their employees.

Challenger Space Center Arizona receives no funding support from NASA, Smithsonian Institution, Challenger Center for Space Science Education (Challenger National), or the federal government. We are an independent Arizona charity. Your donations are tax deductible to the extend allowed by law.

IN MEMORY OF A LOVED ONE

“In Lieu of Flowers” is a request by families whose loved ones have passed away and wish to leave donations to a charity of their choice. We are grateful to our friends in aerospace, education, sciences, the arts, and the community at large for kind and generous support.  We have made this a simple process so as not to add additional hardship or stress during a time of sorrow.

ASK YOUR EMPLOYER TO MATCH YOUR GIFT

Some corporations will match employee-sponsored projects in the form of cash or other contributions. Ask your human resources department about these opportunities.

Some of our volunteers who work for corporations like Honeywell and General Dynamics are able to track their volunteer hours at Challenger Space Center, and those volunteer hours translate into cash donations by the corporation to Challenger Space Center. For more information please contact our Donations & Accounting Office at 623-322-2013 or email accountant@azchallenger.net
