How to Support Us

Donate Through Old Bill’s Fun Run!

What is Old Bill’s?

Twenty-one years ago, an anonymous, philanthropic couple, fondly known as Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, envisioned a collaborative event to support local nonprofits. For the first time, organizations came together in an efficient, unified fundraiser that raised awareness of community needs. Over the last two decades, more than $146 million has been raised for local organizations, and it has inspired similar events around the country.

One of the most innovative fundraisers in the nation, Old Bill’s Fun Run is also one of the most successful. In 2017, the event raised $12,168,165 from nearly 3,798 donors. Old Bill’s has brought an astounding $146 million philanthropic dollars to our community. These funds are busy feeding the hungry, supporting the sick and elderly, teaching kids to read, protecting wildlife, building affordable housing, enriching our lives through the arts and touching the lives of everyone in Teton County.

Personal Stargazing Tour

Your support helps us…

– Connect community members and visitors to our shared humanity through free and low-cost astronomy programs throughout the year

– Empower kids in our local schools to pursue science learning with inspiring STEAM education curricula

– Decrease light pollution that is harmful to human health, nocturnal wildlife, and county energy costs

– Keep our doors open!

The Old Bill’s Fun Run fundraiser
is an integral part of Wyoming Stargazing’s annual budget
.

Without your support through Old Bill’s, we cannot provide the free and low-cost public programming, astronomy after-school program, Science Speaker Series, or the array of STEAM education programming for our over 1,000 local school children.

In 2018, we collected 85 individual donations.
Can you help us reach 100 this year?

In 2019, you can give to Wyoming Stargazing beginning August 1st through 5pm on September 14th. Join us Saturday, September 7th, for Old Bill’s Fun Run on Jackson’s Town Square!

When you’re ready to donate just click on this text or any of the Old Bill’s images and then click on the “Add to Cart” text at the bottom right hand corner of the screen once you are redirected to the Old Bill’s Website. Thanks!


Book a Stargazing Program

There’s nothing we love more than teaching people about the night sky. Using the fantastic night skies found in Grand Teton National Park, we’ll teach you about the wonders of the Universe while letting you peer into some of the deepest reaches of our own galaxy, and even a few galaxies beyond our own

It winds up being a win-win for everyone. You come away with a much more extensive understanding and appreciation of the wonders of the Universe and we become better able to share a similar experience with the rest of the public.

Getting Rid of Your Old Smartphone?

We Can Use It!

Wyoming Stargazing recently acquired Universe2go augmented reality (AR) goggles in order to continue educating and inspiring the public in new and exciting ways.

These devices use smartphones to display the content. In combination with the accompanying Smartphone App this newly developed star viewer shows the stars with a wealth of information and fantastic images. Digital information is merged with the image of the real night sky. You are, therefore, not looking at just the display, but at a live image of the real starry sky! Universe2go is the world’s first smartphone-based AR viewer, demonstrating what is already possible in the world of augmented reality.

Your smartphone donation will help us take full advantage of this technology for as many people as possible!

Please erase all personal information including apps that contain personal information from your phone before donating the phone to us. Thanks!
