We Welcome Your Support

Calling all Angels. We are a humble organization built from the sweat, tears, and hard work of the community and visitors from around the world. The work is grassroots. We've relied on the generosity of community volunteers and neighborhood organizations to support our work over the past year.

We hope you'll consider supporting our long-term vision for the care of George Floyd's Memorial. We are looking for community donors who wish to support our vision for growth and sustainability: a permanent home for the growing collection of offerings, a full-time staff, and continue to offer a community space for racial justice education while contributing to the economic growth of the neighborhood at 38th & Chicago.

The George Floyd Global Memorial is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit in Minnesota.

The George Floyd Global Memorial, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Minnesota, was established by George Floyd's aunt Angela Harrelson, his cousin Paris Stevens, and Lead Caretaker Jeanelle Austin, to bring together members of George Floyd's family and the local community to preserve over 2500 creative expressions of pain and hope left as offerings at the place where George Floyd took his last breaths. The family affectionately calls him Perry, but the world was introduced to George Floyd, a man who suffered an unjust death at the hands of police on May 25, 2020.  At the intersection of 38th Street E and Chicago Avenue S in Minneapolis, MN, people continue to come from all over the world to stand in solidarity for racial justice, express both pain and hope, and pay respect to the names of people who've died unjust deaths. These offerings continue to be received and tended to by local community members (Caretakers) with support from local organizations like the Pillsbury House and Theatre and the Midwest Art Conservation Center. We are committed to racial justice education to ensure that the stories of the local community are preserved for generations to come.    The George Floyd Global Memorial is and will continue to be a living memorial that inspires all people to pursue justice.

The George Floyd Global Memorial houses an estimated 3,000 offerings that have been laid by protestors from around the world at the sacred site of George Floyd Square (GFS). We are working to preserve the offerings with appropriate conservation treatment. Conservation treatment is a delicate and timely process that typically requires the experience of an art conservator. Our goal is to preserve the offerings to maintain our cultural integrity and story. The work of conservation is an essential part of cultural heritage preservation.

We need your help to tell our story to future generations. Your sponsorship of an offering will ensure that it can be professionally examined and treated. We invite you to help preserve the memorial with our community.
