You can help explore worlds, find life and defend Earth with your support today. This year's exciting advances in space exploration are the bright spots of 2021. And because of you, The Planetary Society has been able to make a real impact on key missions like the thrilling Perseverance landing on Mars (including the microphone we've championed for years), and our extended LightSail® 2 mission, whose scientific outcomes are informing three upcoming NASA solar sail missions.

And now it's time to move forward to 2022 together! With your help, we've captured the world's attention, but there's so much more work to be done.

When you invest in The Planetary Fund, your donation will be matched up to $100,000 thanks to a special matching gift challenge.

Starting now, you can double your impact and power our work to:

  • Advocate for space by keeping up the fight for a robust NASA budget for planetary exploration.
  • Defend the Earth by funding Shoemaker NEO grants to fund telescope and equipment upgrades for astronomers who study the asteroids that could affect our planet.
  • Educate and reach out to the public through public events like this year's amazing virtual Planetfest.

With you by our side, we'll continue to advocate for space exploration. In times like these, our work is more vital than ever to build the dream of a positive future for humankind.

Please donate today and your impact will be doubled! Thank you for your generous support.

Let’s change the world!
