Annual Fund

Gifts made to the Annual Fund ensure McDonald Observatory’s work in science education and public outreach continues and reaches as many people as possible. Hands-on STEM experiences for students, teacher professional development workshops, Visitors Center star parties, and our flagship StarDate Radio program, which reaches listeners on over 300 stations a day, are a few of the education and outreach initiatives that Annual Fund gifts support.
