SETI Institute
Leadership Giving Circle

What happens when like-minded explorers unite to support the search for life beyond Earth?

Age-old questions are answered.

The SETI Institute's Leadership Giving Circle honors those who invest in the mission to understand life in the universe at the $1,000+ level. This mission requires steadfast support, and donors who give at this level are leaders in the quest to find life beyond Earth. Will you join them?


With the meaningful gifts from members of the Leadership Giving Circle, the SETI Institute can invest in the following efforts:

  • The ATA will make antisolar observations of stellar systems with exoplanets when they are in the Earth Transit Zone.
  • Upgrade the remaining 22 dishes and further enhance the signal processing system to make the ATA even more sensitive, reliable, and flexible.
  • Add ten LaserSETI instruments across four observatories spanning the Western hemisphere to create unprecedented coverage of the night sky.
  • Fund continued research into animal intelligence, arctic environments, and extreme habitats.
  • Launch a new community college internship program
