Shade Structures

Shade Structures

Staying in the shade is a great way to prevent skin cancer.

The Shade Project advocates for shaded areas in public places by working with local community organizations and schools to develop a plan to add shade structures at their community spaces, parks and school campuses.

We guide project leaders through the project scope and site planning process, obtaining bids, boosting community support and developing a fundraising strategy.

Consulting includes access to discounted pricing through USA SHADE and promotion of the project on The Shade Project website and social media outlets.
