The Annual Adopt a Variable Star Program (AAVSP)

Near the end of 2013 we plan to launch a fundraising program designed to encourage small donations to the AAVSO from a large number of donors each year. The concept is very simple and has been used by other non-profits to raise money for children, animals, and other good causes: “adopt” the variable star of your choice for one year for a donation to the AAVSO of $20.00 U.S. (tax-deductible in the U.S.). Our program will be called the Annual Adopt a Variable Star Program (AAVSP).

Centennial T-Shirt Fundraiser

To help support our 2011 Centennial Celebration the AAVSO is offering special commemorative T-shirts in exchange for your $50.00 donation to the AAVSO. This was a limited edition run of 200 shirts only (update: about 130 left as of May, 2011). Once they are gone they are gone. We will never produce these collector items again.
