Introducing new ways to donate to the Fair!

Rainbow Flag in the Castro

We are excited to announce the launch of the new Donate form on our website – a new way to help support the fair.

Castro Street Fair is a non-profit 501c3 organization, and fundraising event for the local community. Founded by Harvey Milk in 1974, the annual cost to produce the Fair has grown to over $200K. Your one-time or recurring donation is essential to our on-going success.

This year, in addition to helping underwrite the cost of flying the Rainbow Flag at Harvey Milk Plaza, we are also sharing proceeds with these incredible beneficiaries: Bears of San Francisco, Castro Community on Patrol, Castro Country Club, Centro La Olas, Familiar de la Raza, Family Link, Haight Ashbury Cooperative Nursery School, Imperial Council of San Francisco, McKinley Elementary PTA, Most Holy Redeemer AIDS Support Group, San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, San Francisco Spikes Soccer Club, SF Boom Softball Team, Queer Lifespace, 15 Association.

We also made it easier for you to donate during the fair, if you forgot to go to the ATM. Simply text the word “CASTRO” to 41-444, and you can make your gate donation with your credit or debit card.

By making it more convenient for you to donate, we want you to be a big part of making the 44th Annual Castro Street Fair the most successful EVER for the charitable organizations we partner with.   Please consider donating now, or giving at the entry gate. See you Sunday at the Fair!
