Below are a few of our favorite skaters using The Boardr Fund to get good things done in skateboarding for themselves. They use your contributions for travel, contests, filming in the streets, equipment, and more.
Airport Slabs DIY Project: It's not just individuals on The Boardr Fund. You can also contribute to skate projects like the Tampa Airport Slabs DIY.Support DIY
Sky Siljeg: One of the most low key underground rippers you'll find today. We need to get him at more events like Vans Park Series.Get Sky There!
Keenan Lewis: This young man out of Florida has been coming to our contests and getting it done in skating since single digit ages with the help of his mom. Now you can help, too.Help Keenan Out
Allen Russell: Big Al is out there right now building at The Boardr HQ. Throw something in his tip jar for all the free skating you get on the things he worked on while you were sleeping.Back Big Al Now
Only legitimate amateur and professional skateboarders with a Boardr profile are eligible for a Boardr Fund. To apply for yours, first search for your profile and then click the "Apply for a Boardr Fund" link on your profile.
Money you donate minus administrative fees goes directly to the skater as a donation free and clear from any contractual obligations to the skater. The Boardr does not attempt to regulate how the skater spends the funds, although we strongly encourage them to use it to further their fun and career in skateboarding.
Once we talk to you, verify a few things, and collect the approprite tax information, you'll see the donation button show up on your profile for people to contribute.
Donations to your fund can be requested when your balance reaches $100 or more and are made by sending a request to Help@TheBoardr.com. A check will be mailed to your address on file after basic fraud verification procedures. Our check run cycle is bi-weekly. If you're having trouble getting your fund over $100, we can make an exception for you. Not a problem, there. Administrative charges are 7% plus 2.9% credit card processing fees. The amount of your request will have these fees and charges deducted. For international skaters, we will work with you on wire transfers minus the applicable fees. All amounts are in US Dollars.
You will receive a 1099-K for any proceeds you get from your donations. We can assist with basic tax questions, but you'll have to contact a tax preparer for the exact treatment on your personal tax return. This Q&A on 1099-K's explains one approach.
After you're approved for a Boardr Fund, your profile will show stats and a donate button like these examples below. Contact us at Help@TheBoardr.com with questions.
