Support the Friends of the Planetarium

Friends of Arlington's Planetarium plans to continue hosting community events, such as our popular Sunday Science lecture series, Nights at the Planetarium, and more! We also plan to purchase new digital programming for community shows, sponsor planetarium training sessions for Arlington Public School (APS) teachers, and start a scholarship for APS students. With your generous support, we'll be able to accomplish these goals. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to Friends of Arlington's Planetarium, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, today to support science education and outreach in the DC Metro area!
