100 Year Starship is a 501(c) not-for-profit. All donations are tax deductible through the Dorothy Jemison Foundation for Excellence.

Suggested Amounts

$29.12 Moon Phase

It takes approximately 29 days, 12 hours to cycle from one New Moon to the next. The changing phases of the moon was one of the first discoveries humans noted in the sky.

$93.00 From the Earth to the Sun

Contribute one dollar for every million miles between the Earth and the Sun, a reminder of the distance to Earth's closest star.

$150.00 Metric Astronomical Units

Contribute a dollar for every million kilometers between and the earth and the sun.

$365.00 Interstellar Coffee

A dollar a day for enabling interstellar capability. It’s like sitting down each morning for a cup of coffee with 100YSS. (Not the fancy stuff, just a small, strong jolt to get the day going with a cup of sunshine.)

$1000.00 Ten X 100YSS

A nice round number that will help tremendously!
