Next Generation Donors Campaign

Donate Now


The Society of Satellite Professionals International works to attract bright young talent to careers in the satellite industry through our Next Generation program.  We organize engineering and business competitions for university student teams and provide travel stipends for students to attend satellite and space events.  We present scholarships for satellite studies and host recruiting missions for talent executives to student space events. 


Our work is made possible by the continuing support of our Corporate Sponsors and donations to the Next Generation Fund.  Thanks to them, we have invested more than $1.3 million in the next generation over the past 15 years and built networks that help the best and brightest find their way into our business.


Donate Today

Join our 90-day campaign leading up to the Hall of Fame Benefit Dinner at SATELLITE 2017.  The programs launched in 2015 and 2016 have depleted our Next Generation Fund, and we need to raise an additional $30,000 to pay for even more programs in the future.  A donation takes less than 2 minutes on our website, and you get to pick the amount. All who contribute to the Next Generation Fund between now and March 1st, 2017 will be entered to win. The winners will be announced from the stage at the Hall of Fame Benefit Dinner.


About the Wine  

Donors each have a chance to win a Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008, provided by Silvano Payne, CEO of SatNews, and owner of Siesta Estate Wines, Sonoma, California.  The magnum is branded with the "Mission Patch" for the Better Satellite World campaign.
