Ofrendas: Offerings of Hope

Sponsorship Opportunities

There are many ways to get involved in supporting Ofrendas.

Submit your donation on the LCAC's Colorado Gives website.

Your donation can be directed towards a specific project or divided evenly among the levels. Please specify in the "special instructions or comments for nonprofit" section of the donation submission form.

Ofrendas at Home

The Ofrendas, or offerings upon an altar, are the centerpiece of this sacred celebration because they are what guide the spirits of ancestors back to their living relatives. They may include photographs, foods, flowers, candles, decorations, and other sacred elements that our loved ones enjoyed in life. As such, the LCAC is putting together a series of unique handmade altar-kits.

Our aim is to build healthier and more resilient communities, so for every two that are acquired through donations, one will be gifted to a family or individual.
