Be a Star – Contribute to the Planetarium
The Delta College Planetarium & Learning Center has brought the universe to school children, Delta College students and community members since 1997. Funded by a $9 million grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), it is one of the most active planetariums in Michigan, offering cultural and educational programs to more than 25,000 visitors each year.
Upgrades and changes continue to redefine the "Planetarium experience", and Delta College has embraced the latest technology. Our Digistar 4 is the world’s most advanced digital theater system. Bright and sharp images, full-dome video and a new 360-degree projection system allow viewers to see, feel and hear a more dramatic and immersive show than ever before.
You can Be A Star and support Delta’s state-of-the-art facility! Your donation will be dedicated to supporting the future needs of the Planetarium & Learning Center, from new technology to new programs. You can ensure that future generations will be able to see our universe in its entire splendor.
Here’s how the Be A Star program works:
You can become a part of Delta’s Planetarium & Learning Center. Your financial support entitles you to have your name permanently engraved on one of the "stars" or a Planetarium seat.
There are a total of 621 "stars", located in their respective constellations, embedded in the facility’s lobby. Two sizes of stars are available, along with theater seating. Sponsorships are tax-deductible, and can immortalize you, your family members or friends.
If you are interested in sponsoring a star or a Planetarium seat, contact the Delta College Foundation at 989-686-9224 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
