Ways To Give

Kids on a field trip to the Observatory

Matching Gifts –Many companies with a strong local presence will match their employees' charitable donations. For those supporting the Observatory, this includes Membership fees, which are entirely tax deductible, as well as unrestricted contributions.

To ensure matching gift funds for the Observatory, check with your employer! There will likely be a basic form for you to fill out, and the Observatory staff will confirm your donation. It takes little effort, but can yield big results in support of our work in STEM education for young people and adults in our region!

General Electric, Duke Energy, Ethicon EndoSurgery, Procter and Gamble, and many other corporations support employee giving through matching gifts. Click here for a more comprehensive list, and ask your employer today if they'll match your giving!

For more information, or to submit a gift to be matched for verification, call Observatory Development Director Anna Hehman at (513) 321-5186 or reach her via email at
