Please Donate to Help Make the Festival of Altars Possible

Help keep Day of the Dead alive in San Francisco and donate here!

Each year, the Marigold Project must raise the funds for the Festival of Altars at Garfield. The tradition of an outdoor altar exhibit has served as a unique, spiritual community space- encouraging and enabling thousands of moments of healing, connection and celebration for over three decades.

We are asking our Day of the Dead community to stand together to ensure this event remains a FREE community event, with no corporate sponsors. If you have been touched by Day of the Dead and would like to see it continue and grow, please consider donating a gift. Any amount welcome. All donations will go towards:

1) Securing permits for Garfield Park

2) Supporting infrastructure required by the city (portapotties, toilet paper, dumpsters, trash cans and trash bags)

3) Supporting artistic expression at the Festival of Altars (purchasing flowers for the communities use in building their altars!

 

All donations are tax deductible.

Help spread the word!

In San Francisco, Day of the Dead has been celebrated since the early 70s with altar installations, music, performances and a walking procession, which help us contemplate our existence and mortality - a moment to remember deceased friends and family, and our ancestors.
