|KaBoom Community Partnerships
is a national nonprofit that envisions a place for children to play
within walking distance to local residences in North America. In order
to achieve this, KaBOOM! has created ongoing opportunities for
community organizations to build a new playground or skatepark. Ideal
community partners are usually child-serving non-profit organizations,
but can be community development organizations, neighborhood
coalitions, schools or any organization that can mobilize a volunteer
work force and is in need of new play places.
applicants will be awarded a project that will sustainably, but not
completely cover the costs of building a new play space. Therefore,
eligible applicants include community partners that are able to raise
additional funding towards the cost of equipment. After planning and
support from KaBOOM! the community will be able to build the play space
in one day with the help of community support.
