Giving Tuesday is a global daylong celebration designed for giving back to your community. This year, Giving Tuesday is Nov. 30.
As a nonprofit science and space exploration learning center, Space Center Houston is committed to giving back to the community every day. We invite you to participate in the Giving Tuesday with us.
Your donation – large or small – supports the extraordinary learning opportunities that Space Center Houston makes available to students who would not otherwise have access to authentic science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education experiences.
Every dollar, from $5 to $5,000, fuels our drive to engage, inspire and educate.
