Asterion Foundation™ was founded in 2016 as a not-for-profit corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
Our mission is to provide astronomy education and outreach programs including but not limited to making micro-grants ($500 to $5,000) for these purposes. We collaborate with other non-profit organizations including schools, universities, libraries, planetaria, observatories and science clubs.
In our inaugural year, the Asterion Foundation™ awarded over $10,000 in grants. We expect to double our awards in 2017!
