Holiday Pop-Up Marketplace

Saturday, November 21

10 am to 4 pm | The Shop at Marin Art and Garden Center

The season is (almost) upon us! You’ll get in the holiday spirit on Saturday, November 21 when you join us at our Pop-Up Marketplace, featuring the most festive items from The Shop, mood-lifting houseplants, and the famous Marin Art and Garden Center Greens Sale. 

Bring your list, because you’ll find something for everyone among our curated selection of useful and beautiful products. Books and puzzles, scarves and shawls, fragrant soap and candles, plus one-of-a-kind vintage items are sure to bring smiles.

Shorter days mean more time inside, so pick up a houseplant for a breath of fresh air indoors. We’ll  have easy-care favorites that make for great gifts; Garden Manager Steven Schwager will help you choose. 

Don’t leave without ordering your holiday greens: you can pick up your wreaths and garland the following week so it’s as fresh as can be.

Social distancing will be observed. Please wear a mask; credit cards only.

IRS Guidelines for Gifts from Donor Advised Funds to Support MAGC Events

Thank you for your interest in giving to the Marin Art & Garden Center events from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) or Family Foundation.

We sincerely appreciate your generosity and support!

To ensure your gift follows the current IRS guidelines for DAF/Family Foundation support of an event, we would like to share the below guidelines with you.

  • Raffle tickets, tickets to galas and other special events, auction items, and benefits conferred in connection with a DAF/foundation grant are not permitted.
    • IRS has specifically ruled that fair market value associated with fundraising events cannot be separated, a practice known as “bifurcation.”
      • For example, with Edible Garden, if the price of the ticket is $200 and the FMV fair market value (non-tax-deductible amount) is designated to be $50, the donor must pay from sources other than her DAF/foundation for the full value of the ticket ($200) and not just for the non-tax-deductible amount ($50).
    • We recommend you confer with your financial advisor to confirm if any of these examples of how donors may still use their DAF to support an event would work for you:
      • A donor could sponsor the event, and not attend, and pay fully out of the DAF/foundation.
      • A donor could sponsor the event using DAF/foundation funds and attend by purchasing an individual ticket through non-DAF/foundation funds.
      • A donor could sponsor the event, join the event as a guest of another donor/table guest, and pay fully out of the DAF/foundation.
      • A donor could sponsor the event and host the afforded number of people at their chosen level as long as they pay for the seats at the lowest ticket price ($200 for Edible Garden) outside of their DAF.
        • As an example, a $1,500 sponsor that covers 2 guests, could pay for their sponsorship with $400 from a different source of funds, and then give an additional gift of $1,100 out of their DAF.
