Donations to the RASC, Toronto Centre

Help the RASC, Toronto Centre bring the universe to thousands of people every year. We organize around over a hundred events annually, including speaking engagements, star parties, workshops, school projects and courses, to name a few. We are lucky to have such a rich, diverse body of dedicated volunteers. Unfortunately, not everything is free and we rely on membership fees, donations and sponsorships. With help, we can afford things like:

  • Bringing engaging and prominent speakers to Toronto and the GTA
  • Maintaining our stock of telescopes for public outreach
  • Creating hand-out star maps and other outreach materials

If you would like to donate, we accept and are happy with donations of any size. You can donate with a specific purpose such as our programs at the David Dunlap Observatory or contribute towards our overall operations. Donations are tax deductible ($20.00 minimum) as the RASC, Toronto Centre is a registered charity (registration number 889410577). You can donate online through PayPal:
