Please consider helping the USAAAO fund the US team‘s trip to the IOAA this year! We’ve started a campaign at https://www.generosity.com/education-fundraising/usa-team-at-international-astrophysics-olympiad to raise money for the travel costs as well as other USAAAO costs like a team t-shirt and training camp resources. We’re a completely volunteer-run organization and have had little luck with corporate sponsorship, so any help is appreciated! Feel free to donate through the campaign link above and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Our fundraising is supported by and done through the American Association of Variable Star Observers (https://www.aavso.org/). The AAVSO is an international non-profit organization of variable star observers whose mission is to enable anyone, anywhere, to participate in scientific discovery through variable star astronomy. The funds raised through this fundraising will be given to and used solely by the USAAAO to cover travel costs to the IOAA, the training camps, and miscellaneous items such as T-shirts for the team.
