The Story

Every dollar given will be matched up to $50,000!


We have been kicked out of our home and we need your help to secure a new one. The City of Seattle is requiring that the building we rent be seismically reinforced and upgraded to meet current energy code. Rather than pay for these very expensive improvements, or give us time to raise the money ourselves, our landlord has chosen to terminate our lease. We must be out of our home by November 30.  


This is a devastating blow emotionally and financially.  Just over a year ago we invested every dollar we had saved in moving our gym to its current location.  Our staff and friends volunteered their nights and weekends to shape this space into a new home believing that we would have at least six years to make it worthwhile. 


This is a critical moment in the life of our organization. But as you know, parkour is all about overcoming obstacles.  We are committed to keeping our vibrant community together.  With your help we can ensure that Parkour Visions is around for a long time to come.


We are working to raise $100,000 in donations by the end of the November to help us through this unexpected transition.  A small group of committed PKV families have pulled together a pool of $50,000 and will match every gift that comes into this site dollar-for-dollar!


The funds raised will allow us to sustain operations and pay staff as we continue to provide classes in the community while conducting a thorough search for our new space. It will also provide the money needed for equipment storage and all the move-in and build-out costs associated with a new location allowing us to move in as soon as we find our new home.


Parkour Visions is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the positive benefits of parkour through teaching, design and advocacy since 2007.  PKV has taught the transformative discipline of parkour to thousands of humans ages 3 and up.

Today was the last day for students to come in and train at the gym. Jumps were broken for the last time in this space and tears were shed. In the last week alone over 400 different people came to classes and open gym to say goodbye to this gym. 

While it's definitely sad hearing how crushed people's kids are and knowing that our class offerings are going to be pretty limited for the next few months, I can't help being optimistic about crafting our next space after the amazing support we've seen from our community in the form of donations and volunteers. It's been less than a week since we put out this campaign and we're already 75% to our goal :)

You all are awesome and I'm looking forward to the future space we'll build together! 

Side note: Did you know you might be able to get your contribution matched by your employer? Lots of companies have employee giving programs and you can look up yours here - potentially doubling your contribution!

Wow! Twenty four hours in, and we're already almost 25% of the way to our goal! You all are incredible.

And remember, every dollar you donate will be matched 100%, doubling your contribution. 

Keep sharing with your friends, your family, and your parkour community.

Thank you so much, and we can't wait to find and build our new space!
