Put Some Sparkle in Giving!


If you’re seeking a unique gift idea to be treasured by a friend or a loved one, your wish has come true! Orlando Science Center’s Adopt-A-Star program is as multi-faceted as the jewels of the evening sky! When you adopt a star, you are providing invaluable support for Orlando Science Center.

Adopt-A-Star assists with development of new and enhanced programming, technical support and equipment needs for the observatory. And, adoption fees are tax deductible as allowed by law. Most of all, adopting a star is a creative and personal way to commemorate a special event or person in your life.

Giving is especially meaningful when you can share gifts that support a good cause. Each of the stars in our Adopt-A-Star Program is considered to be a "bright" star and all of them are visible from the location of Orlando Science Center’s Crosby Observatory at some point throughout the year.

For those who do not live near Orlando or are unable to visit us in person, there are still many stars available for adoption that are visible from alternative locations. We have a star for everyone and will gladly help you select the appropriate one for adoption.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why adopt a star from Orlando Science Center?

Orlando Science Center strives to provide science for everyone by creating opportunities for experiential science learning and promoting science literacy. Although there are many ways for you, your family or your company to support Orlando Science Center, the Adopt-A-Star program helps you celebrate an important event or honor someone special while becoming a friend to Orlando Science Center. Your charitable gift supports our mission, making a difference in the lives of Central Florida students, teachers and families for years to come.

Will I be able to see the star I have adopted?

Yes. Some stars may require telescopes for viewing depending on your location and the time of year. Most are visible using just your eyes. Orlando Science Center Astronomers can assist with any questions you may have locating and viewing your adopted star.
