Planetarium
A Seat Under the Stars

 

When the Sacramento State Planetarium opens this fall, it will be a destination for thousands of Sacramento-area school children and lifelong learners interested in astronomy, as well as for Sacramento State students and faculty. The planetarium is part of our new Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex, which also includes an observatory. This will be the only planetarium/observatory venue within a 90-mile radius, and the largest of only three in the California State University system.

 

We are offering a special opportunity to show your support for the planetarium and STEM education.  With your gift of $1,000, you will have an opportunity to name a seat in the new planetarium. 

 

Your donation will help fund planetarium operations and help build an endowment for the planetarium to support ongoing programming. Plus, you will see your name in print in our newest academic building, leaving a lasting legacy on campus.

 

Enter your preferred recognition name (approximately 20 characters) in the open comments section when you check out.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

How many seats are available?

The Planetarium seats 120.

 

Can I choose my seat?

The seats will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis starting with the front row and moving back. Shaded seats will be named last.

 

How long will my donor plate remain on the seat?

Your donor plate will remain on the seat throughout the lifetime of the chair.

 

Will the seat I sponsor become my seat for shows?

No. Seating for planetarium shows will be on first-come, first-served basis and your sponsorship does not guarantee that you can sit in your seat when attending a planetarium show.

 

Don’t want to name a seat, but still want to support the Planetarium?

You can make a donation of any amount to support the planetarium when you click “Give Now”.
