The Colfax Skatepark is sponsored by the Colfax Green Machine. The Colfax Green Machine, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation, established by parents, coaches, and community members. They are dedicated to helping youth sports and academic groups in the Colfax area.
My name is Sergeant Ty Conners with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. I am writing to you on behalf of the Colfax Skatepark Committee and “The Colfax Green Machine” (a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization). These organizations are working in collaboration with the community to build a New Public Skatepark for our community’s youth. We envision creating a vibrant community center for engaging the youth of Colfax and the surrounding area. The Skatepark will facilitate developing civic identity and community interaction! We estimate over 900 kids in our community are passionate about skateboarding, BMX, scootering and rollerblading. The youth of Colfax do not have a place to safely pursue their sport. Their passion and athletic drive should be supported by a safe, sanctioned place to exercise, socialize, and develop skills that will be useful throughout their lives. We are dedicated to making this happen! We are appealing to you for Help! Our team has paired with Grindline Skateparks, Inc. to design a customized facility. We are seeking donations to bring us closer to our goal of $500,000 to build a park that will make Colfax proud and keep our youth engaged. You can be a part of this project by supporting our youth with a monetary donation, material donation, and/or volunteer donation. Business and community leaders as well as hundreds of individuals have pledged support! The City Council of the City of Colfax, by resolution, stands with the coalition to see the skatepark built. Our community is clearly excited and eager to see this project succeed. Please consider how you would like to support this important project. I have included our acknowledgment list for your review. I would like to thank you for considering this opportunity to partner with us. I have attached a list of materials needed for this project and the financial estimate as well. If you have any questions regarding our organization, our fund management policy, or the project itself, please feel free to contact me. Thank you, Sergeant Ty Conners

This a huge project and a lot of money to raise and materials to gather. We break down the project into two groups "Cash" and "Materials". 65% of this project is made up of materials. So we are really focusing on getting donated materials to offset the need for cash in hand.
So far we have raised $40,000 in cash with small fundraisers and donations.
Thank you to Jack Berry for creating this video for the Colfax Skatepark, we used this video to show Colfax City Council the need for this project.
