Help shape our Collective Future with a tax-deductible contribution to Explore Mars, Inc., and help us to make our goal of putting Humans on Mars by 2033 a reality

On behlf of the entire Explore Mars team, I would like to personally thank you for being such a strong supporter of Explore Mars, Inc. and of the humans to Mars mission. We have made amazing progress over the past several years, but there are still no guarantees that humans will walk on the surface of Mars any time soon. It may sound like a cliché, but decisions made in the coming year could very well determine the path of human space exploration for the next twenty years. Certainly, it is the intention of our entire leadership team at Explore Mars to continue to do everything in our power to assure that humans are walking on the surface of Mars no later than the 2030s.

We are neither exaggerating nor bragging when we say that dollar for dollar, Explore Mars is one of the most effective non-profits in the space exploration community. However, achieving our ambitious goals still requires the generous support of dedicated and passionate space advocates like yourself.

We would be grateful if you would consider supporting Explore Mars this year with a contribution. I can guarantee that it will have a significant impact on Explore Mars and our mutual cause. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by the end of 2018. Please help us in any way that you can to achieve this goal and to make a real difference.

Please feel free to reach out to me or to any of the Explore Mars leadership team if you have any questions.

Best wishes, and thank you for your support,

Chris Carberry
CEO, Explore Mars, Inc.

Explore Mars, Inc., the Testimonials:

“The Humans to Mars Summit 2017, along with the subsequent industry and government meetings that came of it, made this year’s conference one of the most effective trips to Washington that I have executed in the last 5 years.” Grant Anderson, President and CEO, Paragon Space Development Corporation

“The H2M Summit is an amazing STEM/STEAM infused conference. From the latest in Virtual Reality that will make living on Mars less lonely, to the technology that is advancing a human outpost on the Red Planet, to speeches and conversations with the top scientists, engineers, artists and sci-fi writers, biologists and space industries that are making MARS not just a future hope, but our future reality, H2M brings the best and brightest together to create an interactive experience with STEM. The future is here, STEM is here, and it’s fully present at the H2M Summit!” Janet Ivey, Janet’s Planet

“I have attended this Summit since its inception and as I told you, and many others at this event; the H2M Summit keeps getting better every year… this was no exception!  Both the number and level of attendees has increased significantly and this is also true of the panel speakers.  This, along with other improvements you have made, has given this forum much greater credibility and it is arguably the foremost Mars Summit for the industry.” Garry White, Rear Admiral (Ret.), USN; Vice Chairman, Busek

“Throughout its existence, the Explore Mars organization has been tireless in its efforts to support the development of broad policy consensus on US space exploration policy, especially with respect to Mars exploration.” Jeff Bingham, U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, Professional Staff (retired)

“We are on Mars today with our intrepid robotic explorers.  Explore Mars brings together a diverse group of space leaders, academics, and enthusiasts with the shared goal of exploring Mars with both humans and robots–soon.” John M. Grunsfeld, Astronaut and Scientist

“… efforts (by Explore Mars) have been indispensable to the US space policy process and have succeeded in establishing clarity and understanding among legislative and executive branch policy-makers regarding the focus for future exploration of Mars.” Jeff Bingham, U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, Professional Staff (retired)
