TRANSFORM YOUR GAME
Build It with KaBOOM!
Community members will take the lead in recruiting volunteers, securing food and tool donations, and completing any necessary site preparation. Municipalities and nonprofits serving children of playground age are eligible to apply.
KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to saving play for America's children by creating great playspaces through the participation and leadership of individual communities. Applications are now being accepted for playground grants through Build It with KaBOOM!, a program that provides eligible communities with most of the funds, tools, and resources they need to build a custom-made playground in a single day. Through the program, selected community groups work closely with a KaBOOM! project manager who will lead activities as well as coordinate the equipment and material purchases for the project.
Applicants must contribute $8,500 toward the cost of playground equipment; recruit seventy-five to a hundred community volunteers to participate in playground build day; and own the land on which they wish to build, or possess a long-term lease and obtain permission from the landowner to construct a playground.
Deadline: November 9th.
