Grant Description
Grants of up to $10,000 to USA nonprofits and government agencies to improve or expand existing recreational programs serving children with disabilities, or to establish programs that will provide new opportunities to children with disabilities. LOIs are due July 1.

Priority focus will be given to organizations that fulfill the foundation's mission of inclusion by bridging the gap between young people with disabilities and the world around them. Programs may include successful modifications, inclusive games, and other information to successfully run a program of inclusion.

The foundation is looking for programs that do the following:

- Implement Let’s ALL Play.

- Utilize the National Inclusion Project’s training module to increase their staff’s capability to serve children with disabilities successfully in an inclusive setting.

- Provide scholarships for children with disabilities who otherwise could not participate due to financial need.


  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS
  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Organizations must be a public nonprofit, State or Federal agency, private nonprofit, or headquartered in a Poverty County.

Not Funded:
- Organizations outside the United States.
- Capital Expenditures including but not limited to play spaces, playgrounds, buildings, and equipment-only inquiries.
- Advocacy Groups.
- Programs that exclusively serve children with disabilities.
- Adult Programs.
- Medical or therapeutic expenses.
- Scholarships for college attendance.
- Programs where inclusion only occurs in a “buddy” or “mentor” model – i.e. children without disabilities provide peer modeling for children with disabilities.
- Programs that are not fully inclusive. This includes programs where the siblings are the only group of children who are typically developing that are included and/or programs where children with special needs are a separate part of the program but are “mainstreamed” for parts of the program day.

Partners will be eligible for funding for a maximum of three years but any partner award will be given on a year-by-year basis. A new proposal will be required each year.
