Corporate and Private Donations To FBAC
The Fort Bend Astronomy Club (FBAC) is a long-standing 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a 509(a)(2) public charity with a long history of donations from outside groups to help the club fulfill it's motto of "Observing, Sharing, Teaching & Promoting Astronomy". FBAC is dedicated to not only serving its members, but the general public as well.
FBAC is grateful to accept donations from corporate entities, local businesses and the private sector. In order to continue serving the public through our education, outreach and volunteer efforts, the Fort Bend Astronomy Club is in constant need of replacement equipment, along with the acquisition of improved technology.
Through the years, FBAC has touched the lives of over 200,000 people through the astronomy outreach we perform at the Houston Museum of Natural Science's George Observatory. We also contribute real scientific results to the greater astronomical community. Today, we perform these activities using our club-owned 18-in. Newtonian reflector and its mount, located in the Observatory's East Dome. This equipment is showing its age and needs to be replaced. If you wish to better understand what impacts we've had and how you can help ensure we can continue this work for the foreseeable future, please read about our East Dome Renovation project. Your contributions are greatly appreciated!
