The American Association of Variable Star Observers is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit scientific and educational organization. As such, we depend on the financial support of our members, benefactors, friends, foundations and corporate partners to continue our scientific and educational programs.
We extend our heart-felt appreciation to all of the benefactors of the AAVSO. THANK YOU!
The following is a list of the specific funds to which you may contribute. If you do not wish to specify how you would like your donation to be used, the AAVSO will determine the fund where it is needed most and place it there.
The corpus of these funds are permanently restricted, income, capital gains and losses (realized and unrealized) are considered unrestricted income usable toward the operation of the organization.
