Possible additional funding

  • The Kiwanis Children’s Fund provides grants for Kiwanis-led service projects that focus on health, education and youth leadership development. Clubs interested in applying for a grant for a playground project should review the program material carefully to learn about the Children’s Fund as a potential funding partner. Check out the Club Grant program for eligibility requirements, important dates and additional resources.
  • Keurig Dr Pepper & KaBOOM! have teamed up to offer $15,000 grants to be used toward purchasing playground equipment. Grantees will lead their community through a self-guided planning process, using the $15,000 grant towards the total cost of playground equipment and assembling the playground using the KaBOOM! community-build model. Grantees have up to one year to build the playground and will have the support of a remote KaBOOM! Grants Manager and an onsite Certified Playground Installer. Learn more about the community build model in the Build a Playground Toolkit.
