Donation Based Membership
Membership at Polaris is 100% Free. We just require your support of the art and services provided through a tax-deductible donation that supports the transportation of Polaris, it’s improved sound system and further support for our incoming resident DJ artists, and interactivity.
Due to our current global situation, the 2021 Burning Man event is tentative, and our price points are tentative as well. For all who register to receive our updates, we will email you with details. In the past, a single donation of $585 has been asked. We anticipate a lower donation given the situation. Yes, you will receive a tax deductible receipt at the end of 2021. We thank you for your support of Polaris, which your donation directly supports through maintenance, transport, lighting software, recruitment of DJs, new sound designs, and new seating on Polaris for the bottom and top floor, as well as safety maintenance.
