Improving lives through skateboarding.
Mission Statement: Board Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation. We provide skateboards and safety equipment to organizations that work with underprivileged and/or at-risk youth. The donations we make to organizations are made possible because of support from our generous partners, and monetary donations by individuals.
At its core, skateboarding is about getting outside and having fun, but it can also teach kids many skills that can be applied in day-to-day life:
- Build self-confidence
- Adapt to a variety of environments
- Interact with others in a positive manner
- Demonstrate that hard work and dedication create results
- Reap health benefits of outdoor physical activity

We help youth organizations in the United States only.
Are the Board members of Board Rescue paid a salary?
Nope—we are all volunteers!
What year did you begin operations and where are you located?
We began our operations in 2008 and we are located in Palo Alto, California.
