PSI's Challenge Match Campaign - 2020

Dear Friends and Supporters of PSI,

We need your help to meet our 2020 year-end fundraising goal. Each year we launch a "virtual rocket trip" that begins on the Sun and, if successful, ends by landing us on Pluto. A group of generous donors has pledged $6,750 to PSI but there's a catch - to get the money we must raise MATCHING FUNDS. We are asking you to help us raise the $6,750 that we need. Thank you!

Every dollar you donate buys us "fuel" to help the PSI rocket reach Pluto. And because your donation is matched, your gift to us is doubled.

The deadline is December 31, 2020.

Will you help us reach our fundraising goal of landing on Pluto before the end of the year?

Thank you!
Listed here are the various other programs that you can support with your contribution to PSI. Thank you so much.   
The Michael J.S. Belton and Anna Don Fund was established by Michael J.S. Belton and Anna Don to support biennial symposiums with a focus on the origins, physical structure and composition of comet nuclei. Dr. Belton was a leader of the planetary science community and made fundamental contributions to cometary science. He was also a member of PSI’s Board of Trustees. His passion for science lives on through the support of this fund.

 The Betty Pierazzo Memorial Fund honors PSI Senior Scientist Betty Pierazzo , an internationally noted planetary impact scientist and educator. This fund supports the Pierazzo International Student Travel Award, which is given annually to an American graduate student to attend a planetary meeting outside the US and to a non-US graduate student to attend a planetary meeting within the US, promoting international collaborations.          


Education and Public Outreach.  Turn on the television, open a newspaper or a news magazine and you will read about the urgent need to improve STEM education. We are doing our part to make a difference nationwide to educate and inspire the next generation of scientists - students. When you hear someone say, “Every gift makes a difference,” that is so very true for our education programs.
