    About KABOOM! Grants

    Since 1996, KABOOM! has collaborated with partners to build, open or improve more than 16,700 playgrounds across the country. Our work is community-driven; which means that our projects seek to build trusting relationships, center community voices, and engage diverse stakeholders. We do this by working hand in hand with your kids and adults to design, plan for, and build your community playspace.

    We build playspaces in partnership with child-serving nonprofits and municipal agencies. Our projects are an incredible opportunity to build new and exciting places for kids and teens to play.
