IAC Friends


We have several modalities of collaboration in the Patronage Program. Each mode has associated a series of courtesies that are detailed below.

How to become “Amigo del IAC”

Fill in and follow the steps of the form attached to each of the collaboration modalities. As soon as the contribution is processed and validated, the IAC's Patronage team will inform you about your membership in the Patronage and Sponsorship Programme. In case you are interested in sponsoring an event, we will contact you after receiving the completed form.

Modalities of participation

There are different types of collaboration available, the description and characteristics of which can be seen below.

You must provide your personal and contact details, select the method of payment and specify the type of contribution, according to the modalities of the Patronage and Sponsorship Programme and your interests. 

*Visits to the observatories begin at the entrance to the observatories, where you will be picked up by the person in charge of organizing the visit. Travel to that point is not included in these visits.
