Charitable Donations and AmazonSmile

The Cape Cod Astronomical Foundation maintains the observatory and equipment from charitable donations. Charitable donations allow us to provide the existing environment of research grade equipment available to students, members of the society, and the community at large. Keeping the equipment operational and exploring new methods to research and investigate astronomy at the observatory requires financial resources and the commitment of a dedicated staff of volunteers. If you would like to contribute financially or as a volunteer, please contact us!

Additionally, the observatory requires supplies like batteries, tools, cleaning materials, and parts. These minor operational and maintenance items are partially funded by Amazon. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.
