Backlot Coffee's Virtual Tip Jar

Friends of Backlot!

The world seems like it has changed overnight. We continue the fight to keep our three cafes open for business. But as sales continue to decline and anxieties rise, we ask ourselves, how will we be able to take care of our staff if we are forced to close our doors?

We are adapting to keep our doors open in the communities which we are blessed to be a part of. We are cutting hours and have committed to supplement and support our staff financially through this pandemic. To do this, we are asking for your help.

Please consider contributing to our virtual tip jar. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to our staff.


Thank you GoFundMe for providing this platform.

Thank you for the support!
