As a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, Challenger Space Center of AZ relies on donations in addition to our admission fees to visit the Museum portion of our Center. Since we receive no governmental support from school districts, state, federal, NASA or Challenger National, we rely on individuals and corporations who see the need to support the more than 33,000 lives we touch each year through a variety of programs and services we offer.
Donations of this type help us in a variety of ways from our Restoration Fund to providing Gap Funding for projects that have been partially funded through grants and sponsorships; like bringing in new exhibits or supplementing our Field Trip Assistance or Camp Scholarship Programs.
