The following individuals and organizations have contributed $100 or more to the Earthrise Project, and are hereby recognized as "Earthrise Contributors." They will be honored by having their names inscribed on a plaque to be erected at the Earthrise dark-sky site when it becomes operational. Anyone who wishes to become an Earthrise Contributor and to add their name to this list is invited to check our donor page for the various donor levels and special one-time offers we currently have.

In addition to the people and organizations listed below, we gratefully extend our appreciation to the McCune Charitable Foundation in Santa Fe, NM, for grants which have helped us enormously in getting to where we are today; to Meade Instruments in Irvine, CA, who has donated telescopes and other astronomical equipment to the Institute; and to the cast and associated members of Star Trek, who graciously autographed a telescope that we were able to raffle off and thus secure the down payment for the property at the Earthrise dark-sky site.
