Your generosity supports our community

The Roost Lounge in the heart of Coachella Valley isn’t just a place for fun – it’s a community cornerstone. Through The Roost Foundation, the bar supports various nonprofits and charities in the region.

Donations from patrons directly benefit organizations addressing healthcare, education, and more. In addition, funds will go towards The Roost Scholarship, which provides financial aid to individuals seeking education that may not have the means to cover their expenses.

These philanthropic efforts transform the bar into a hub for positive change, proving that inclusivity and
compassion can extend far beyond the dance floor.
