About the Save a Star Foundation
Our Mission : AstroAdvocacy
The Save a Star Foundation (SAS) is a 501(c)3 Utah based nonprofit founded to advance and support Preserving and Reclaiming Dark Skies in the Western United States.
Founded by a communications professional and international award winning nightscape photographer, SAS introduces a bold new vision. We endeavor to educate, influence, and share the consequences of light pollution in a new, compelling and creative way.
While artificial light is one of humanity’s greatest achievements, there is the excess, poor planning, good intentions, but poor execution. SAS is partnering with business to expand a community of thought leaders and tech innovators to leverage their corporate social responsibility toward our ambitious mission.
