The Mars Society "is a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization in the United States. Our federal tax identification number is 31-1585646." [1]

"The Purpose of the Mars Society: To further the goal of the exploration and settlement of the Red Planet. This will be done by:

  • Broad public outreach to instill the vision of pioneering Mars.
  • Support of ever more aggressive government funded Mars exploration programs around the world.
  • Conducting Mars exploration on a private basis.

"Starting small, with hitchhiker payloads on government funded missions, we intend to use the credibility that such activity will engender to mobilize larger resources that will enable stand-alone private robotic missions and ultimately human exploration." [2]
