Thank You!  Your donations made to “HAL5 Project HALO” have allowed HAL5 to complete Phase 1 (Rockoon Proof-of-Concept) with the successful history-making launch the Sky Launch 1 hybrid rocket!

Now we are well into Phase 2 (Operational Rockoons), when we can start launching student and amateur space experiments.  Donations are now needed to help cover the cost of the new Tube Launch 1 (TL-1) hybrid rocket mission in Spring or Summer 2006.

Please make your check payable to “HAL5 Project HALO” and mail to the following address:

Please donate whatever amount you can to Project HALO.  This is the year we need your financial support the most.  This is the year we can make real space history -- especially with Project HALO and HALO Achievement.  It’s for a good cause -- Space for us all -- in our lifetimes!  Ad Astra!

If you desire, you may earmark your donation for either the “Technical” or more “Educational” (i.e., HALO Achievement) parts of Project HALOYour donation to HAL5 Project HALO is tax-deductable to the extent which the law allows.

Donor Status will be Cumulative

Your status as a donor to Project HALO will be cumulative.  We at HAL5 believe that you are equally generous whether you make one big donation or many little ones over the years.  Thus, your total contribution to Project HALO is used to determine your donor status.  The table below summarizes the cumulative donation requirements for each donor level.  Note that Corporate donor levels are purposefully set to ten times that of individual donor levels.
