The Scooty Fund
Promoting, supporting, and advancing mental health culture in ways that enhance the lives and well being of young people.
TSF has changed attitudes towards mental health through developing curriculum for Seattle area schools and funding research and service organizations. Founder Kasey Taylor and other fellow alumni from Mercer Island High School discuss the impact of TSF on their community and how it has inspired their personal journeys in advocating for mental health.

2023 Scooty’s Run
On September 9th we hosted our Second Annual Scooty’s Run event in observance of World Suicide Prevention Day. We were joined by 207 participants representing 17 states and over 25 cities.
Thanks to everyone’s participation and donations, we were able to raise over $16K for The Scooty Fund! Participants spent their mornings getting movement in whilst shoulder to shoulder with their peers discussing mental health and remembering our namesake, Will “Scooty” Taylor. Thanks to all who came out! You can still donate below!
