We’re delighted to announce our 2016 charity, the SETI Institute. The SETI Institutes mission is to explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe, and to apply the knowledge gained to inspire and guide present and future generations. They have a passion for discovery, and for sharing knowledge as scientific ambassadors to the public, the press, and the government. Founded in November 1984 and located in Mountain View, CA, the SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization comprised of three centers: the Center for Education, the Carl Sagan Center for the Study of Life in the Universe and the Center for Public Outreach.
