Valentina
$2 per month
Reward
As Valentina Tereshkova's flight was important to inspire women to explore space, this smallest donation is fundamental for the Kyrgyz Space Program to become a reality.

Reward:
  • You'll be able to tell your grandchildren that you helped a truly historic event to happen!
Special tier against hate speech online
$3.33 per month only 76 left
This reward was created as a response to the growing hate speech online that our girls started facing since we announced the project.

Please use it if you read Bektour Iskender's post on Facebook. If you don't understand Russian, we will publish the English language version later.

Reward:
  • You'll be able to tell your grandchildren that you helped a truly historic event to happen!
Svetlana
$4 per month
Reward
Svetlana Savitskaya was the second woman in space. After her flight in 1982, sending women to space has become much more regular than before! Be like Svetlana!

Reward:
  • You'll be subscribed to our exclusive patron-only posts that will notify you about the latest developments of the Kyrgyz Space Program.
Sally
$8 per month
Reward
Sally Ride was the first American female astronaut. She remains the youngest American astronaut to have traveled to space, having done so at the age of 32.

Reward:
  • Your name will be listed on the website of the Kyrgyz Space Program.
Kathryn
$16 per month
Reward
Named after Kathryn Sullivan, the first woman to perform a spacewalk, this donation will be rewarded by a postcard from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, signed by girls who will work on a satellite!

Reward:
  • Every year you will receive a postcard designed and signed by satellite girls.
Helen
$20.19 per month
Reward
This tier is very personal and very special for us. To the whole world Helen Sharman is known as the first ever UK astronaut and the first woman to fly to the Mir space station. But she was also the first astronaut who met in person with our satellite builders. We will never forget that. Because it was in 2019, the tier is 20 dollars 19 cents a month (not $2019!). :)

Reward:
  • Every year you will receive a postcard with an illustration of our girls with Helen Sharman that is designed and signed by satellite girls.
Anna
$32 per month
Reward
Anna Lee Fisher was the first mother to fly to space. We encourage mothers to join our program too!

Reward:
  • With this donation, after at least 3 months of patronage, you will receive a T-shirt with Kyrgyz Space Program logo (the ones that satellite girls also have).
Mae
$64 per month
Reward
Mae Jameson was the first African-American female astronaut. Yay! This donation is dedicated to all the people of colour who devoted their lives to space exploration.

Reward:
  • By subscribing to it, you will get an unusual reward — a free online lesson from satellite girls on the history of CubeSats and fun facts about space, International Space Station and astronauts' life.
  • With this donation, after at least 3 months of patronage, you will also receive a T-shirt with Kyrgyz Space Program logo (the ones that satellite girls also have).
Chiaki
$128 per month only 19 left
Reward
Chiaki Mukai was the first Asian female astronaut. Moreover, she had TWO Shuttle flights, how cool was she!

Reward:
  • With this donation you'll get access to a once-in-three-months video chat with girls who build the satellite. We have to limit this type of donation, because we won't handle a video chat with more than 20 people at the same time. :(
  • Those who donate us $128-a-month, after at least 3 months of patronage, will also receive a T-shirt with Kyrgyz Space Program logo (the ones that satellite girls also have). 
Eileen
$256 per month only 20 left
Reward
Eileen Collins was the first female pilot and first female commander of a Space Shuttle. She is a great role model for our team!

Reward:
  • Your name will be engraved on a metal plaque and put in a room where the satellite will be designed and built. Unfortunately, we have to limit the number of these rewards, because we don't have enough space for more than 20 plaques.
Anousheh
$512 per month
Reward
Anousheh Ansari was the first Muslim female astronaut. This means a lot for Kyrgyzstan, where most of the population are Muslims. It is easy to become Islamophobic when right-wing politicians are getting more and more power in the West.

Reward:
  • This donation will give you a special reward: one-to-one conversation with Muslim feminists or Muslim LGBTQ-activists about how diverse Islam can be! Very refreshing and cliche-breaking!
Peggy
$1,024 per month only 10 left
Reward
Peggy Whitson holds the record for the most time in space among female astronauts. She spent astonishing 665 days cruising around our planet, mostly on the International Space Station. To commemorate her achievement, we are introducing this generous donation option.

And there will be a generous reward:
  • Your name will be engraved on the CubeSat itself (but with very-very small letters, unfortunately, because the satellite is so small).
