Ways to give

Your gift — in any amount — has an immediate impact on our mission to inspire all generations through the wonders of space exploration. You can make a tax-deductible gift in the following ways:

By credit card

By clicking on the “Donate Now” button, you can make a debit or credit card donation through our secure website to the Manned Space Flight Education Foundation. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.

By telephone

Call +1 281-244-2118 to make your credit/debit card gift over the telephone.

By check

Mail your check to the Manned Space Flight Education Foundation, Development Department, 1601 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX 77058. You may make an unrestricted gift to support our mission or designate your gift for education programs or capital projects such as the Restoration of Historic Mission Control. Simply indicate your designation on the memo line of your check or with accompanying correspondence.

Gifts of stock

A gift of appreciated securities can be a financially beneficial donation. Donors may receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the transfer and avoid capital gains on its appreciated value.

If you are considering making a gift of securities, please contact us at +1 281-244-2118 prior to making the donation so we can provide you or your broker with the banking information for the transfer. We will record the specific date of your transfer to provide you with the appropriate tax documentation.

Matching gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program as a benefit to their employees. You can double or even triple your impact when you take advantage of a matching gift benefit. If you are not sure, please contact your company’s human resources or benefits office to inquire if your company offers matching gifts.

Legacy or planned gifts

Planned giving is a way to make a gift while maximizing your investment goals. Some gift vehicles create an income stream for you! All planned gifts should be made in consultation with your financial advisor. The simplest form of planned gift is a bequest in your will. Suggested bequest language to share with your advisor is as follows:
“After fulfilling all other provisions, I give, devise, and bequeath ____ percent of the remainder of my estate or $ ____ [specific amount] to the Manned Space Flight Education Foundation. (Tax ID 76-0217152), a charitable organization incorporated under the laws of Texas, located at 1601 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX 77058.”
