American Academy of Dermatology (AAD)
Grants of up to $8,000 to USA parks, schools, day-cares, and nonprofit organizations to install permanent shade structures above outdoor areas where children and youth (up to age 18) play and learn. Eligible locations include playgrounds, eating areas, pool decks, ball field dugouts, and other outdoor locations. Funding is intended for organizations that have shown a commitment to sun safety education and skin cancer awareness.
The grant includes the cost of shade structure materials and installation. In addition to the grant, the AAD also provides a permanent sign to be placed near the shade structure featuring sun-safety tips.
A shade structure is defined by the AAD as being a permanent structure with a roof made of protective materials, such as textile, fabric, metal or wood, and supported by permanent columns or posts. Grant recipients are able to select the size and type of the structure that best fits their outdoor location and meets the AAD’s shade structure criteria.
