Current Donors

The Compass Project would not be possible without the help and support many individuals and organizations. We would like to thank UC Berkeley, and in particular the College of Letters and Science and the Departments of Physics, Astronomy, and Earth and Planetary Sciences, for the financial and administrative support they have provided. We would also like to thank Steadfast for providing free hosting for our website.
