Because SEDS is a non-profit, we rely on your donation to make our mission possible: to promote the exploration and development of space. We have over 80 active chapters and a half a dozen projects that require donations from people and companies like you. As an incentive and to say thank you, our Tiers shown below exhibit the benefits of donating and give predetermined amounts that we know make an astronomical difference for SEDS members! Without you, SEDS would not succeed.
