To build the skatepark Wauwatosa deserved, we needed to raise some serious cash.
In early 2013, the Doyle Family stepped up big and proposed the Jack Doyle Memorial Challenge Grant. They pledged $80,000 if the City of Wauwatosa and Tosa Skateboarders United each match that amount. In June 2013, the City of Wauwatosa agreed to match the Doyle Family’s contribution! That meant that TSU was only $30,000 away from building the skate park! And in October 2013, TSU reached their part of the Challenge Grant. The skatepark planning was underway!
Generous funding from an anonymous donor along with a MAJOR contribution from Landmark Healthcare Facilities allowed the Tosa Skatepark project to expand to its current design. Fundraising continues as future expansion is possible.
