The Tony Hawk Foundation
The Tony Hawk Foundation was established in 2002. The organization was initially financed by Tony Hawk after he saw the lack of safe places for people to skate across the nation.
Since 2002 the Foundation has been fulfilling its mission to help many young people by awarding grants to low-income or dis-advantaged communities to build safe public skate parks. He also works personally with local city officials, parents and the children through the process of building the park. The tony Hawk foundation to-date has awarded more than $5.7 million to skateboard projects across the country .
