Shade Structure grant recipients

Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. The American Academy of Dermatology has awarded shade structure grants to 20 schools and non-profit organizations across the country in order to protect children and wild adolescents from the sun's harmful rays.

Since its launch in 1999, the AAD's Shade Structure Program has awarded over 450 shade structure grants, which provide shade for 3.6 million individuals each day. The following listing includes names of organizations that were awarded Shade Structure Grants in 2022, and the dermatologists who sponsored these efforts. Each organization listed will receive a grant of up to $8,000 to use toward the construction of a permanent shade structure.
