The Visitor Center was established in 1964 at a time of strong financial support from the U.S. Government. For over 50 years we have reached each new generation. The days of government support of the Visitor Center are gone. Yet we hope to reach new generations for the next 50 years. You can help us achieve this goal.  The Kitt Peak Visitor Center is a non-profit educational organization, a unit of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, AURA.  AURA is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization so your gift may be tax deductible.  Your contribution will allows us to reopen to the public and resume our mission which is to inspire a sense of wonder and knowledge about the universe through nighttime stargazing programs, exhibits, and guided tours.  Click the Donate button below to go to our secure donation page.
