The Chico Community Observatory fund is to help raise money for equipment and labor to complete repairs to the Observatory’s power system, so that we can open the Observatory once again to the public. Once we reopen, this fund will help us with the upkeep/repairs (computer hardware, telescopes, roof replacement) to the Observatory, so we can continue our public outreach, and provide viewing opportunities and education of astronomical events to the community.
The Chico Community Observatory is run by volunteers, and is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization, so donations are tax deductible.
It is our mission to provide computer science education and awareness to underserved and underrepresented groups in Chico and surrounding areas through community outreach, educational resources, internships and job opportunities, and experiential events.
The purposes of the Chico History Museum is to promote and carry out activities that further the discovery, classification, interpretation, display, exhibition and preservation of the history of the beautiful City of Chico.
