The Yellow Brick Road Fundraising Campaign!


On July 11th, another major SDOT project, the repaving of our part of Roosevelt, begins in front of Scarecrow. This is the fourth construction project in the last year to happen within one block of us, creating new challenges for our patrons. So we’re papering over our big back wall with our own Yellow Brick Road! This fundraising campaign will pave the way into the next phase of Scarecrow’s non-profit vision. Once we’re over this hump we can get back to what matters most: solidifying our place as a Seattle institution and community resource.

How you can help:           

The Yellow Brick Road campaign builds a new path forward and that means we need lots and lots of bricks – and lots of friends to share the way!

        • $2 and up: Put your name on a yellow brick that will help us build our road.
        • $10 and up: Ruby Slippers…click your heels three times and say “There’s no place like Scarecrow!”
        • $20 and up: We’ll pin up a Flying Monkey with your name on it!
        • $50 and up: You can choose from a grab bag of Oz characters like Dorothy, Toto, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, Glinda or the Wicked Witch, or our namesake, the Scarecrow!
        • $100 and up: In the Land of Oz, anything is possible. Turn the Yellow Brick Road into Fury Road with your own Mad Max or Furiosa!

If you’re contributing at the $50 Level, remember to leave your choice of Oz characters in the Notes field, and please let us know how you’d like your name written (or if you’d like something different) on any reward you choose!

When we started our non-profit venture two years ago, we couldn’t have imagined the challenges that would be thrown at us by local construction zones. It’s thanks to our loyal patrons that we’ve been able to survive this tough year.

As we head into this (hopefully) final construction project, we’ve tightened our belt even more, but we still need to call on the incredible film-loving community in Seattle to step up again to help us get through. On July 6th, we’re kicking off our Yellow Brick Road campaign to pave the way into a construction-free future.

Funds raised in this campaign will go directly toward general operations –things like paying the rent, keeping the lights on, and paying our staff. As a young non-profit, we’re still building relationships with funders. Receiving a boost at this critical time will allow us to get through the tough months ahead. Thank you so much for your continued support!
