Shade Structures

Shade Structures

Get Your Shade On!

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

With the support of our partners at USA SHADE, we help guide project leaders through the project scope and site planning process, obtaining bids, boosting community support and developing a fundraising strategy.

Our support also includes access to exclusive discounted pricing and promotion of the shade installation effort on The Shade Project website and social media outlets.
