Why Give

Dear Friends of Virginia Space Flight Academy,

   YOU Keep the Mission Going 

Together with our supporters, we have done powerful work in our community this year. Your financial gifts made it possible to run a successful, COVID-free camp this summer for 121 students. It was a summer full of unparalleled challenges – but also of joy and excitement as laughter filled our camps once again. Your support allowed us to test new territory by launching a virtual STEM Academy to reach those who could not attend in-person camps this summer. Through astronomy, aerospace, and robotics modules, this new hands-on Academy has the potential to inspire many students in our community in the years to come.

Will YOU Help Our Community Ignite its Potential? 

As a treasured part of the STEM community, our small non-profit remains financially fragile after last year’s closures and the additional costs of running camp programming during a pandemic. We’ve made it this far, and now we need your support to continue serving our youth and expanding equitable access to STEM experiences.

The Power of the Gift of STEM

Young people need a camp and out-of-school learning experiences more than ever after the recent extended social isolation. And they will need us again next year and for years to come. The Space Adventure Camp and the new STEM Academy are essential  components of the year-round educational continuum that provide out-of-school experiences designed to spark interest and broaden students’ ideas about the STEM workforce – inspiring the next generation that will take us into the future.

We believe that all students deserve access to quality
STEM education opportunities and mentorship.
Will you join us to help nurture young people’s “STEM Identity”?

 As this historic year comes to a close, VSFA relies on key supporters like YOU to provide deserving children with access to out-of-school learning. When you support VSFA, you enable a child to step outside the boundaries of their home life to be challenged in a healthy and safe, out-of-school environment.

Please Join our Efforts by Donating Today!
We rely on donations from individuals just like you to help us serve our youth with actionable, relevant, and equitable STEM opportunities.
Whether you make a one-time donation or become a sustaining, monthly contributor of $20, $50, or $100, together, we can change the lives of many children.
