Galaxy Society

FUEL THE SEARCH.

The SETI Institute relies on gifts from individuals who support our research, education, and outreach efforts.  Donors who make gifts totaling $1,000 or more per year become Galaxy Society members. We hope you'll enjoy the opportunity to learn more about the research, education, and outreach, and have some fun along the way!
