KaBOOM! provided more than 1 MILLION kids with opportunities for play just this year with playground builds, grants, direct action, and more.
Building playgrounds and empowering communities are core aspects of our mission. This year we've taken it much further:
- As the leading proponents of playability, we are grateful to the 241 cities across the country that are making play a priority every day through policy, programming, and infrastructure! Over 200 new cities have joined since we started the program.
- As a champion of empowering communities, we are thankful for the partners who helped us give grants totaling more than $3 million assisting with 200 community projects to reach more kids.
- We launched Play More B'More this summer which mobilizes multi-sector partnerships to put kids first, giving underserved youth an opportunity to lead the creation of kid-friendly communities.
- During the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina we had our 198th area build since the storm, and we celebrated the resiliency of these communities who have rebuilt through prioritizing play.
Every tax-deductible dollar you give reminds kids they matter.Your contribution will help us continue to bring play to kids across the country, and develop innovative ways to make play accessible to those who need it most.
