Voices. Knowledge. Solutions.

The principal focus of the Tony Hawk Foundation is to encourage and facilitate the design, development, construction and operation of new, quality skateboard parks and facilities in low-income communities throughout the United States. The Foundation provides support to parks that are designed and built by qualified and experienced contractors, include local skaters in the design process, and demonstrate a strong grassroots commitment to the project. Also, parks that have a creative mix of obstacles and terrain, don't over-regulate or restrict access to the park, don't charge money, and are in areas that currently have no skateboarding facilities are preferred. Nonprofit organizations and government agencies, including public schools, are eligible to apply. Applications deadlines are March 1, June 1, September 1, and December 1, annually.
