Help Build Playgrounds!

Playgrounds for the people, by the people.

Thank you for visiting the Carter’s Kids donation page.  Carter’s Kids is a 501 c 3 non-profit that is dedicated to fighting childhood obesity by building playgrounds all over the United States.


Thanks to the generous support of corporate donors, community groups and individual donors, Carters Kids has been able to build 64 play spaces! 


For the first time ever we have created a crowdfunding campaign to help us continue in our mission of building playgrounds.  These playgrounds not only help a child’s physical development, but also their cognitive and social development as well.


We ask you to please consider a donation to Carter’s Kids and help us continue our mission.  Building new playgrounds is a very costly endeavor, but when you see the positive effect that a playground has on children, their families and their communities, there’s no greater investment.

Thank you for your consideration!


Letter from founder Carter Oosterhouse:


I founded Carter’s Kids in 2006 as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, whose mission is to encourage physical activity and to fight childhood obesity.


Since 2006, our Carter’s Kids team has built playgrounds in communities all over the United States. Each playground built is designed to be an important part of a child’s cognitive, social and physical development.


What we have learned is that each playground we build, not only is important in a child’s development, but also becomes an integral part of the community the playground is built for. A playground provides a place where the community shares a common space, where families gather and new friendships are made.


Each one of our playgrounds has been generously funded by corporate partners, community groups and individual donors. When people fund a playground, they are giving a gift to the community that will last for 20 years and they also are showing the citizens of their community, that they value their customers.


Carter’s Kids is always looking to develop new donors and funding partners so that we can continue to make a difference in communities all over the United States.


It’s been an amazing experience to be able to bring new playgrounds to communities throughout the United States. Thank you to everyone who has helped support our mission, it is greatly appreciated.
