Fun For Everyone
We strongly believe in giving back to the local skate communities all over the country, so hosting and sponsoring events and contests for all ages and skill levels in small skateparks is important for bringing the community together. Our events often include free food and drinks throughout the day, along with a bunch of prizes and raffles every half hour. We also accept donations of used skateboards and parts to be assembled and donated to skaters in need.
LS Movement has offered to pledge 10% of the total sales using the promo code "portage" straight to the Portage Skatepark phase 3 construction. We are also sponsoring their events with donated prizes for raffles on behalf of the fundraiser.

Pay it Forward
Our skateboards may only cost $40, but giving the gift of skateboarding is priceless. We collect used skateboards and parts, which we assemble and donate to skaters in need and at risk youth. Skateboards inspire creativity, teach valuable life lessons, and offer fun physical activity. We’ve donated hundreds of boards, and will gladly take your old boards and parts to put smiles on faces all over the country.
“The Mission of The Portage Family Skate Park Project is to build a multi-generational Skate Park Plaza for Skateboarders of a variety of ages, skills and abilities. Our Skate Park Plaza will be a family friendly, safe environment for all who come to the park.”

The Skatepark Project
The Skatepark Project, formerly known as the Tony Hawk Foundation, has been fulfilling its mission to help young people by issuing grants to low-income communities to build quality public skateparks. They also provide guidance to city officials, parents, and children through the process. To-date, the foundation has awarded over $10-million to more than 600 public skatepark projects in all 50 States, and $150,000 to support the Skateistan program in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa.
The Skatepark Project supports disadvantaged communities and at-risk children. They are the only national grant-writing organization focused solely on the development and financing of free, quality public skateparks. We know that skateparks provide a safe and inspiring avenue for skaters to practice and excel at their sport, and the process of developing their local skatepark encourages and teaches young people about how to make positive changes within their own communities.
