LSSTC: Investing in Discovery

LSSTC, headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.  LSSTC was originally formed to initiate the LSST Project and advance the science of astronomy and physics.

Today, LSSTC is a coalition of more than 30 institutional members that are invested in maximizing science and community building with the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST).  LSSTC is an independent component of the overall LSST ecosytem, which includes (i) the federally-funded Vera C. Rubin Observatory project that is building and operating the LSST, (ii) the self-governed international LSST science collaborations, and (iii) LSSTC, a non-profit that is privately funded, through member dues, foundation support, and private donors.  

LSSTC is building a future where resources are available to realize the full scientific potential of LSST data, and where networks and partnerships create a new-normal of inclusive participation in astrophysics.  We are doing this by organizing member departments and institutes across the world to achieve outcomes that a single institution would have trouble achieving alone.  We engage member institutions, philanthropists, foundations, and private corporations to facilitate both community-wide support and individual scientist support.
