Let's Play Community Construction grants


About the Let's Play Community Construction program

In 2020, Keurig Dr Pepper & KABOOM! teamed up to offer $15,000 grants toward the purchase of playground equipment. Grantees led their community through a self-guided planning process, using the 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 our Build a Playground Toolkit.


Municipalities, schools, and child-serving nonprofit organizations without a playground or with existing equipment that is unsafe for children are eligible for this opportunity.

Applicants must

  • Own land or have permission to build
  • Spend $24,000 to $50,000 on playground equipment (not including surfacing, site prep, freight, contractor fees, benches, and other non-playground equipment items)
  • Work with a KABOOM! Preferred Vendor (BCI Burke, Landscape Structures, Miracle Recreation, or Playworld Systems)
  • Use the KABOOM! community-build model to plan and build the playground
  • Finish project within 12 months of award
  • Serve a low-income population
  • Demonstrate a strong need for a new playspace in the community
