Crowdfunding for Astronomy

Without quick access to government observatories or large sources of funding for private observations, astronomers can now turn to crowdfunding campaigns to attract support for as little as a few dollars at a time. The outpouring of support can be humbling, yet valuable to researchers who are eager solve problems in space, but lack essential funding resources for astronomy projects.

Thanks to the growth in social media, astronomers have a better chance to connect with passionate audiences across the globe who are interested in supporting their basic research on a crowdfunding platform like UHelp.com. The process is simple for research: create a profile, a fundraising goal, and compelling message that science enthusiasts  will find worthwhile -- and launch. If the idea is deserving, people will pledge their support.
