The Tony Hawk Foundation Accepting Application for Skate Parks to Enrich Young Lives

The Tony Hawk Foundation supports organizations seeking to build free, public skate parks in low - income communities in the United States. The foundation strongly believes that public skate parks should be designed and constructed by experienced contractors and that local officials should treat public skate parks the same way they treat public basketball courts or tennis courts, meaning that anyone may show up and use them anytime, unsupervised. The foundation primarily considers skate park projects that:

•Are designed and built from concrete by qualified and experienced skate park contractors.

•Include local skaters throughout the planning, fundraising, and design process.

•Are in low-income areas and/or areas with a high population of “at-risk” youth.

•Can demonstrate a strong grassroots commitment to the project, particularly in the form of fundraising by local skateboarders and other community groups.

•Have a creative mix of street obstacles (rails, ledges, stairs, etc.) and transition/vert terrain (quarter pipes, bowls, halfpipes, etc.)

•Don’t require skaters or their parents to sign waivers.

•Encourage skaters to look after their own safety and the safety of others without restricting their access to the park or over-regulating their use of it.

•Are open during daylight hours, 365 days a year.

•Don’t charge an entrance fee.

•Are in areas that currently have no skateboarding facilities.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range from $1,000 to $25,000.

Eligibility: All applicant organizations must be a 501(c)(3) public charity, or a state or local agency planning on building a concrete skate park on public property. Additionally, applicant organizations must have a preliminary design, secure a location, and complete some fundraising before applying.
