Inspire the Next Generation of Scientists
Chabot Space & Science Center is committed to science education for students and creating transformative and enjoyable experiences for youth and life-long learners. Our educational focus is on STEM learning - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Our service to the community is made possible from the generosity of individuals, foundations and companies who believe that science matters... today more than ever.
Whatever your means, we invite you to join us in helping extend the impact of science, and inspiring a future generation of scientists and science-literate adults. Through charitable donations of cash, stock or property, or by including Chabot Space & Science Center in your will, you can make a difference.
Employer Matching Program
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Chabot Space & Science Center may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses as well.
If you are 70 1/2 and older: We anticipate that Congress will pass the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 (H.R. 5771), which will extend a provision allowing individuals 70 ½ and older to donate up to $100,000 in IRA assets to a qualified charitable organization. The IRA charitable rollover is tax-free and not included in a donor's adjusted gross income. The bill may not pass until the first quarter of 2015, but will apply to IRA transfers up until April 15, 2015. If you are interested in making a gift through your IRA, please contact your financial advisor for more information.
