Stellar Society

Your Stellar Mission…

Play a key role in helping space and science education reach as many as possible by joining the Stellar Society at Chabot Space & Science Center. Your annual gift of $1,000 or more helps sustain the Center, supports Chabot’s educational programming for school children and public visitors of all ages, and promotes a tradition of free viewing through Chabot’s three historic, research-grade telescopes that started over 125 years ago.

In recognition of your generosity we are pleased to offer all the benefits listed below. Upon request, donors may also receive the benefits of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) reciprocity and/or a Smithsonian membership, including a subscription to Smithsonian Magazine (may decrease tax-deductibility).

"We inspire visitors with our innovative programming, interactive exhibits, films, planetarium shows, and nighttime telescope viewings, while creating a global standard amongst science centers.
- Alexander Zwissler, Executive Director/ CEO
