Donate to AAS 

Austin Astronomical Society, Inc. exists to secure the pleasures and benefits of an association of persons interested in amateur astronomy and space science, to engage in continuing education of Society members and members of the general public interested in the same.

AAS is a charitable organization recognized under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue code. AAS’ Articles of Incorporation are registered with the State of Texas, and AAS is recognized as a nonprofit corporation by the State. AAS is exempt from federal income tax. It is exempt from State sales and use taxes.

Our Federal Taxpayer EIN is: 74-2757050. Please see this link.

Our State of Texas Sales Tax Exemption number is 32002678061. Please see this link.

AAS’ funding comes from annual membership dues and from charitable donations to the Society.

We offer several ways to support the efforts of the Society.

From our main website, you may click the Donate Now! button to make a secure donation of money to the Society via PayPal (no PayPal account is required).

AAS participates in the annual citywide charitable campaign known as Amplify Austin. We accept donations via the Amplify Austin link primarily during the active campaign days of early March of each year. This link is active, however, throughout the year; and donations made through the Amplify portal are accepted throughout the year. One benefit of the Amplify link is that your donation may be made anonymously. Amplify will generate your tax donation receipt and your communications wishes will be honored. Please visit https://amplifyatx.ilivehereigivehere.org/AustinAstronomicalSociety/overview.

Many large employers will match or subsidize contributions of time and or money to nonprofit organizations. Dell, for example, permits employees to designate donations through the Your Cause portal. Your one-time or recurring contribution can probably be set up if you provide our EIN information (above).

Periodically, our members will ask about lifetime gifts or recognition of the Society in estate planning. Again, this process is very simple. Please make sure that Austin Astronomical Society, Inc. is recognized in your will, trust or other instrument. Our officers will communicate with your trustee at the appropriate time.

Donations can be of any type or amount. We will happily accept donations of land, equipment, financial instruments and cash. If your donation is for a purpose or designation, please indicate your wishes at time of donation. Otherwise, all donations will be directed AAS’ general fund.

We will gladly accept gifts in kind of time and professional expertise. Please use the contactaas@austinastro.org email link to let us know how you can help.

For donations of astronomical equipment, please use our contactaas@austinastro.org email address to contact us so we can let you know whether the equipment or cash value from resale is of greater need.

AAS also makes occasional donations to organizations and causes we support. We are happy to pass through your donations in support of the International Dark-Sky Association, Texas Museum of Science and Technology, or The Texas Night Sky Festival.
