We take this opportunity to express our gratitude to our friends and benefactors who share in our mission and supported the Astronomical Society of the Pacific during 2004 – 2005. Your gift to the ASP is truly appreciated, thank you.

This year more than 500 individuals, organizations and corporations made gifts to the Society ranging from $1 to more than $100,000. Gifts like these enable us to further develop and expand ASP astronomy education and outreach programs that excite, interest, and motivate students of all ages.
