Support our Programs

If you enjoy our events and would like to support our programs, you may consider a donation to the Observatory. Donations help us to develop our programs, maintain our instruments, and keep our public astronomy events as well as our educational programs free of charge.

There are several ways to support our programs. You can find a donation box at the entrance of the Observatory for small cash donations. You can also use the Giving to Western online donation form. If you do so, choose “Donate Now”, and when prompted “Where would you like to direct your gift?” choose “Other” and then type “Cronyn” in the search box, and the “Hume Cronyn Memorial Observatory” should appear. Select that option and complete the rest of the form. You will be issued a tax receipt by e-mail.
