How to Give
The Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory (ASC) (formerly known as the Adirondack Public Observatory) (APO) is a not-for-profit 501c(3) organization.
With the completion of the first of three buildings in 2013 - the roll-off roof observatory - stargazing, lectures, student classes and social activities are all being held on a regular basis. We also hold an annual (and very popular) Astrophotography Conference.
In August 2018, we launched a Capital Campaign to raise funds to build the second building in our project - the AstroScience Center museum and planetarium.
An anonymous donor has generously offered a challenge grant of $20,000 to help kick off the Adirondack Sky Center campaign this fall!
Help us to meet this goal and meet the need for astronomy STEM education in Northern New York. All gifts, no matter what size, will help. Please check out Adirondack Gives!
If you are interested in other ways to participate, please call the office: 518-359-3538. Thank you.
