Mission Statement

Board Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation dedicated to providing skateboards & safety equipment to organizations that work with underprivileged and/or at-risk children and to organizations that work with special needs children.

The donations we make to organizations are made possible because of support from our generous partners, and monetary donations from individuals and corporations.

At its core, skateboarding is about getting outside, getting some exercise 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
    • Learn to focus which can help in their academics
    • Demonstrate that hard work and dedication create results
    • Reap health benefits of outdoor physical activity
