Make an Impact

We invite you to celebrate the spirit and resiliency of The Roxie by joining our Forever Roxie campaign. For over one hundred years we’ve kept independent cinema an integral part of our little corner of the Mission District, and with your help we’ll keep it going for over a hundred more. No matter the size of your donation, you will have an impact!

We have big plans for the future, and so we invite you all to join our Forever Roxie campaign and be a part of our continuing story.

All Forever Roxie donations go directly toward our day-to-day operations and programming. With a building as old as ours (over a hundred years and counting!), there’s no end to the places your gift could have a tremendous impact. Beyond that, you help ensure our programming stays dynamic and reflects the beautiful diversity of San Francisco. Your donation supports a lot!

  • A San Francisco Legacy Business
  • Proudly independent cinema in the Bay Area
  • Local filmmakers and artists
  • The craft of celluloid projection
  • Films you won’t see anywhere else
  • Making sure culture stays accessible and affordable for everyone
  • Keeping The Roxie an anchor in our community

Forever Roxie is our Annual Fund Campaign. What does that mean, and why do you ask me to make a gift every year?
Forever Roxie is our annual giving program. It helps provide unrestricted support to our nonprofit organization, specifically our day-to-day operations as well as a variety of programs, including educational screenings, support to local filmmakers, job training, and serving as a host for community partners.

So, Forever Roxie will occur year after year, and I’ll always be asked to make a gift?
Yes. What you and other patrons accomplish with your gift to The Roxie is the ongoing support of our organization and local film community for years to come.

The donation goal seems to change every year. Why is that?
Annual operating costs at The Roxie increase just like food, healthcare, and gasoline prices. As a result, so does our annual goal.

How much should I give?
Every gift is important, and whatever level at which it makes sense for you to donate helps support our goal! Whether your gift is $50, $500, $5,000 or $50,000, the most important consideration is that you choose to make a difference for The Roxie.

Does The Roxie accept corporate matches?
Yes, we do! Many employers throughout the Bay Area provide a matching donation, allowing you to double your donation to The Roxie. Ten minutes of your time can mean twice the donation for us! To see if your company offers gift matching, please click here.

What more do I need to know?
We are so thankful for your support! Any donation, big or small, helps us advance our mission and keeps our little arthouse thriving.
