Astronz’s is a registered charity. Our purpose is to promote and foster the science of astronomy in New Zealand; encourage and arrange the association of people interested in astronomy for their mutual help and organisation of astronomical work; cooperate with other bodies having similar objectives to the Auckland Astronomical Society.
Charitable Giving Programme
Astronz's grant programme is funded with the profits from the activities of our shop. The grant programme promtes astronomy by:
- furthers astronomy and science education and outreach
- supports eligible astronomical and dark sky society activities
To-date, our grant programme has supported Astronomical societies events and initiatives throughout New Zealand. Grants have also enabled students and researchers to attend conferences.
We look forward to continuing and expanding this work. Our 2021 Grant Programme is coming soon.
