Ann Arbor Skatepark Action Committee Announces The Ann Arbor Skatepark Fund and The Ann Arbor Skatepark Endowment Fund
The Ann Arbor Skatepark Action Committee is starting its big-time fundraising with the formation of two funds at The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation. One of the funds will support the design and construction of the skatepark, the other is an endowment to help the City pay for maintenance, improvements and upgrades. Ten percent of each gift to the Ann Arbor Skatepark goes to the endowment fund.
The Ann Arbor Skatepark Fund supports the construction of a free public skatepark where Ann Arbor’s skaters can safely and responsibly practice their sport.
Donors to the Fund become partners in the Ann Arbor Skatepark Action Committee’s efforts to promote healthy exercise and safe spaces for youth, while also involving young people in their community.
Your commitment to the Fund thus enhances Ann Arbor’s reputation as one of the nation’s safest, healthiest and most family-friendly places to live.
The Ann Arbor Skatepark Endowment Fund will support the ongoing maintenance of the Skatepark. Supporters of the Fund ensure that this important addition to the community’s outstanding system of parks and recreational facilities remains safe and attractive for generations of Ann Arborites to come.
Everyone who makes a commitment to the fund by February 28, 2009 will be honored as an establishing donor.To support the Ann Arbor Skatepark, email fundraising chair Jim Reische at firstname.lastname@example.org.
