KABOOM! is the national non-profit that works to achieve playspace equity. Kids who don’t have access to play miss out on childhood and are denied critical opportunities to build physical, social and emotional health. And all too often, it more deeply affects communities of color. So we amplify the power of communities to build inspiring play spaces that spark unlimited opportunities for every kid, everywhere. KABOOM! has teamed up with partners to build or improve 17,000+ playspaces, engage more than 1.5 million community members and bring joy to more than 11 million kids.

For more than two decades, we’ve teamed up with bold, inspiring partners and community members, starting with the kids themselves, to understand each neighborhood’s unique aspirations. Then we build incredible places to play, inspired by their design, courage and leadership. Over the last 23 years, we’ve built or improved 17,000+ playspaces, engaged more than 1.5 million community members and brought joy to over 10 million kids. As we look to the future, we’ll continue our efforts to build collective action and community opportunity, spark hope and enable kids to reach their full potential. And we promise that we won’t stop until we put an end to playspace inequity. For good.

Communities Build Brighter Futures Through Play

As a preferred vendor, Playworld and KABOOM! aim to build thousands of play spaces in the communities that need them the most. But these community build efforts do more than save money or deliver great play solutions—they instill a sense of ownership and pride that revitalizes neighborhoods. Our shared mission is to put a playground within walking distance of every child. Since 1999, we’ve helped thousands of communities rally around the power of play.

KABOOM! Grants

Keurig Dr Pepper & KABOOM! have teamed up to offer $15,000 grants to be used toward the purchase of playground equipment. Grantees will lead their community through a self-guided planning process, using the $15,000 grant towards the total cost of playground equipment and assembling the playground using the KABOOM! community-build model.
