Fundraising for the Lynch Family Skatepark began with a seed grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation in 2003. The skatepark was given a major boost in 2007, when the Lynch Foundation put up a matching grant of $500,000. In 2014, the Conservancy signed a partnership agreement with Vans for $1.5M toward the construction of the skatepark, as well as $25,000/year for seven years to MassDCR for maintenance of the park. The skatepark would not exist without the help of these major donors and everyone who donated – Thank you!

Please note that these donations are current as of October 26, 2015.
