Curiosity and Inspiration Start Here

When you contribute to Chabot, you are contributing to 135 years of Bay Area science education and inspiration.

As a not-for-profit science center,  Chabot relies on generous contributions from you, our community members to fuel our ability to launch and inspire a future generation of scientists and science-literate adults through year-round programs.

Your donations enable Chabot to offer popular STEM-fun events like $5 First Fridays, Tinkerfest and the Future Fridays Speaker series.

Your donations reveal the night skies in our Planetarium shows and out on the Observatory Deck, through our two historic telescopes, "Leah," "Rachel". and research grade "Nellie."

Your generosity touches the lives of Bay Area students and teachers, underwriting the cost of field trips, transportation and teacher workshops, and fueling our year-round, programs for middle schoolers and teens.

Fritz says: "Thank you, in advance!"
