Grants starting at $20,000 to USA and Canada nonprofit organizations and public agencies to expand recreational and fitness opportunities in parks and other public spaces for youth, underserved communities, the elderly and individuals with disabilities. Priority will be given to applicants demonstrating strong need for recreational and fitness opportunities in their communities, especially for demographics historically underserved by traditional park amenities.
Go Greenfields Grants match equipment purchases up to 50%. From the patented Accessible Line for users in wheelchairs, to the Professional Series with adjustable resistance, Greenfields will provide equipment to promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle in parks, along trails, and in virtually any open space.
Funds can be applied to new projects only and can be used for up to three parks. Grants apply only to equipment purchases and do not include installation, shipping, surfacing or applicable taxes.
