Getting Involved with Frosty Drew
Would you like to help? Frosty Drew is always looking for help from the community. We are a community-oriented organization and without community involvement, we would not exist. Helping can be as easy as telling someone who is interested in astronomy, nature, science, or engineering about the Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center. Read below to find out how you can best help Frosty Drew accomplish its mission of delivering inspirational science education to people of all ages.
- Without volunteers we simply could not function. There are hundreds of tasks that need to be done to keep our facilities open and programs up and running. Are you good with carpentry, landscaping, gardening, graphic design, etc.? Are you as much a geek with your own telescope as we are with ours? We'd love to have you become one of the team at the Observatory and Science Center. If you are interested in volunteering at Frosty Drew, please contact us.

- We are supported entirely by memberships, private donations, grants, fundraising, and gifts. We do not receive funding from the town of Charlestown or the state of Rhode Island. Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center is run by a volunteer Board of Directors, and our program fees are kept as low as possible. Donations of any size are very much appreciated and help us to keep Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center as a vital asset for our community. Frosty Drew accepts the following types of donations.
- Financial Donations
- Gifting of needed items from our wish lists:
- Donations of unused telescopes and other astronomical devices.
- Personalized Paver Stones
- Take a thoughtful step in support of environmental education and observational astronomy by purchasing a personalized paver stone for our walkway that links the Science Center and Sky Theatre with the Observatory. Add your name or the name of a person you would like to honor or remember to a paver stone in the walkway.
