KaBOOM! Grants

Type: Foundations
Source: KaBOOM!
Program: KaBOOM! Grants
Eligibility:

Q. We are in the midst of applying
to become a
501 (c)3 non-profit. Are we eligible?



A. Yes. Our ideal candidates are 501 (c)
3
non-profits. If your organization is applying for non-profit
status
we can still consider your application.




Q. We run a private daycare
facility. Are we
eligible for a KaBOOM! build?



A. Applications from private
daycare
facilities are considered on a case by case basis.
For-profit
facilities may be viable for a KaBOOM! build if many
of the
children receive scholarships or outside funding to
participate in
the program. Our ideal candidates are 501 (c) 3
non-profits so
applications from for-profit groups will be less
competitive.




Q. Our organization does not serve
low-income
families. Can we still apply?



A. KaBOOM! strives to work in
communities
with the most need and gives preference to sites in
low-income
communities and/or those that serve children with
special
needs.




Q. Our organization would love to
build a
playground but we cannot open the playground to the public
for
liability reasons. Can we still be considered for
this
opportunity?



A. Yes. We understand that operating a
public
playground may not be possible for many Community
Partners and do
not make this a requirement. KaBOOM! is
interested in seeing as
many kids as possible benefit from each
of our playgrounds and some
of our funding opportunities do
require that the playground be open
to the public.




Q. Can we apply if we do not own
the land of our
proposed playground site?



A. Yes. In order to build with
an
organization that does not own the land of the proposed
playground
site we will need to receive written consent from
the
landowner.




Q. Oh no! I am so excited to apply
but I just
found out that my school district does not allow
volunteers to
install the playground! Is there any way we could
take advantage
of this opportunity without having volunteers
install the
playground?



A. No. Our mission is to create
great
playgrounds through the participation and leadership
of
communities. Community volunteerism is the cornerstone of
our
mission. We have worked with community partners in the past
who
have overcome this challenge with their school district.
We
recommend that you create a playground project
page
on  """">Our Dream Playground, which you
can use as
a forum to post your question and to get advice from
past
community organizers.


Purpose:

Can you imagine collaborating with friends and neighbors
to
build your community a new place to play? Can you imagine a
new
playspace materializing in just one day? If so, a Build it
with
KaBOOM! Grant may be the perfect opportunity for you!




Thanks to the generosity of our many corporate partners,
KaBOOM!
has ongoing opportunities for community organizations to
build a
new playground.




We are currently doing outreach to locate potential
Community
Partners in  "/"//"">cities
and towns across North
America
 to create playgrounds with
KaBOOM! and our
corporate partners in 2014. 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 force and is in
need of a new playground!
