Support Mount Washington Observatory
In 1932 our founders had a vision: To observe and record the weather in one of Earth's most extreme locations, so that they could learn more about our atmosphere and share their discoveries with others.
Today, more than eighty years later, that spirit of exploration lives on, that quest for learning burns bright, and that passion for education is stronger than ever before. Though the faces and instruments have changed, the work of our founders continues in a vibrant, healthy, constantly-evolving institution that has established itself as a national resource for weather and climate observation, research, and education.
Just as our founders relied upon the support of individual donors to make their dream a reality in 1932, our current staff relies upon you, Observatory members, supporters, and fans, to help us continue our work today: Mount Washington Observatory is a people-powered institution, and you are an important member of our team.
Please, join with us in continuing this proud legacy of citizen-funded scientific exploration by making a tax-deductible financial contribution today.
Mount Washington Observatory is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution, so gifts to the Observatory are deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please consult your tax adviser for more information.
