Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $15,000 to USA nonprofit organizations, municipal agencies, and schools to purchase playground equipment to be used for the construction or renovation of a playground. Funding is intended to serve children from low-income families by creating safe play spaces for local communities, including the replacement of unsafe existing equipment.

Grantees will lead their community through a self-guided planning process, using the grant toward the total cost of playground equipment and assembling the playground using the KaBOOM! community-build model. Grantees will have the support of a remote KaBOOM! Grants Manager and an onsite Certified Playground Installer.
