Take you place in history and support the most important step humanity will take in our lives.
100% of your donation will go to the cause you select.
Distribute across all programs: 33% each to each of the fund below.
Mars Prize Fund: The Mars Prize Fund will be awarded to the first Team to send a human to the surface of Mars. The Mars Prize Fund is crowdfunded and designed to accelerate the first mission by offsetting some of the cost.
Micro Grant Program: Provides small grants of about $200 to K-12 educators around the world. Teachers can buy supplies to help teach anything related to outer space.
Operations Fund: We are 100% run by volunteer power but we do have some small expenses that need to be covered. This pays for those expenses so we don’t have to dip into the prize fund for that.
Note: Donations of $100 or more to the Mars Prize fund will pay for an entire mile of the first crewed trip to Mars!
Mars Initiative is a non-profit organization, 501(c)3. We are comprised entirely of volunteers from around the world who donate their time and expertise. 100% of the money we receive will be awarded to the first entity that lands humans on Mars.
