As we conclude the 2024 Annual Campaign, I am thrilled to share the remarkable impact that your donations have had on the AAVSO’s mission.
This year’s Annual Campaign had an ambitious goal to raise $110,000 by Feb. 1, 2024. These funds were directed towards supporting the five objectives in AAVSO’s 2024 Strategic Plan. Your commitment to our cause has been truly inspiring.
Thanks to the contributions of AAVSO members worldwide, we came very close to achieving our goal. We raised a total of $100,653! Although we did not reach our goal, please know that every single donation made a significant impact and helps steer us closer to our strategic goals.
Your support has already made a difference. Just last week, we accomplished the first step in our technological improvement goal by deploying a new authentication system. In the next few months you will see several new applications deployed at aavso.org including new forum software, a new data upload application, and a new data download application.
In the upcoming months, the AAVSO Board of Directors and I will work together to secure the remaining funds necessary to fully realize our strategic plan. Your continued support is critical to this ongoing journey.
Once again, I extend my deepest gratitude to all of those who have contributed to the Annual Campaign. Together we are making a lasting impact on the understanding of the universe.
Dr. Brian Kloppenborg
