I am truly moved. And all of us at The Planetary Society are so grateful for your steadfast support.

We did it!

I recently asked every Planetary Society Member to participate in our $75,000 matching gift challenge.

I’m proud to announce that not only did you meet our goal, you exceeded it, raising a combined $161,916.69 to keep the momentum going on our critical space projects!

Your donation will go twice as far in 2014 to help advocate for space, spur innovative science and technology, and educate the world.

I thank you for your generosity.

Also, if you haven’t donated yet, it’s not too late to help make 2014 our best year ever. Please make your most generous gift today to help us surpass our goal even further.
