Help Boston Common glow for the holidays

With your support, more than 60,000 lights will illuminate Boston Common, with another 25,000 in the Public Garden.

We plan to illuminate the canopy of 60 trees and Boston Common buildings with LED string lights. We'll also mount LED snowflakes on poles along the Mayor's Walk and at the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument.

Our goal is to raise $200,000 to light trees and the buildings in Boston Common for the holiday season. The Fund for Parks and Recreation in Boston is an IRS-recognized charitable organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Sponsorship opportunities are still available!
