General Donation

Securing the future means supporting the Observatory now. The staff is doing a lot behind the closed doors and, with your contribution, we can continue to provide vital technical, equipment, software, and administrative support so the Observatory can continue to serve and inspire the public with digital content, programs, resources, and – coming soon! – a virtual version of the signature Griffith Observatory Fifth-grade School Program. We hope you’ll join us in supporting Griffith Observatory’s mission to inspire our communities and generations to come to take the time to look up, observe, ponder, and understand the sky.

Founded in 1978 as a Federal and California recognized public benefit organization (501(c)(3) non-profit), FOTO’s Federal tax identification number is 95-3374645.
