  • Grants can help pay for playgrounds and park areas. Playground grants are an incredible resource offered by a number of non-profit groups, corporations, and even governments. Many playground grant options are available at local, state and national levels.
  • Fundraising is an effective way to reach your budget goals for playground and recreational projects. (See a list of fundraising resources here). When planning a fundraiser, bear in mind that goals, budgets, and communities differ between parties—what works for one might not work for others.
  • A community build is when groups of people from the same neighborhood or city come together on a playground project. Involvement such as this can cut down on your playground’s installation costs and furthermore incorporate a feeling of involvement.
  • Purchasing contracts (also known as buying agreements or buying cooperatives) are nationwide procurement services with relationships with many different companies for competitive goods and services. These cooperative purchasing networks have professional teams that wield their immense buying power and top of the line suppliers so you get the best bid for the highest quality product.  American Playground Company in Grand Island uses purchasing contracts to obtain the most competitive price.
