What is Starport?

Starport is the branded name for the NASA Exchange JSC. Starport is a quality-of-life program that directly supports the mission of the Johnson Space Center by providing a variety of activities and employee services including wellness programs, fitness, recreational services, food and vending services, retail operations, employee celebrations and convenience services.

How is Starport Funded?

Starport is a non-appropriated funded instrumentality of the government designed to provide employee morale and welfare services to the JSC workforce. As an instrumentality, we do not receive direct funding from the government. Our goal is to generate enough funding to cover costs necessary to plan, produce, promote, and manage the services we provide to the JSC team.

Why Support Starport?

When you support us, you directly support exceptional programs for not only the JSC workforce, but families and retirees also, providing a sense of community, encouraging connection, and aiding in recruitment and retention efforts. The JSC Team consists of a workforce of ~3,000 employees and over 8,000 contractors. When we include family members and friends, we impact 15,000 or more with our programs and services throughout the year.

How do you Partner with Starport?

NASA Exchanges can solicit funding or in-kind assistance through commercial sponsorships, provided that the NASA Exchange – JSC makes no endorsements, all agreements are in writing, and with the concurrence of the JSC Chief Counsel. Two impactful ways to partner:

  1. Starport Partnerships: bundled benefits for use of Starport’s most popular facilities and services.
