Play Grant 2015

$500k in funding avaiable to help build perfect school playgrounds!  

Back by popular demand, Play! by Crozier is launching its 2nd annual Play! School Grant Program, with half a million dollars in grant funding available to help Canadian schools build the playground of their dreams.

Playtime is usually the favourite part of a child’s school day, and a well-designed playground is where children begin to develop social skills and it is where they learn valuable lessons about trust, teamwork and following the rules,” said Iain Crozier, Vice President at Play! by Crozier. “Through our grant program, we were able to make this essential childhood element a reality for many schools. We are eager to continue offer this amazing opportunity for the 2nd year in a row, and know many well-deserving schools will benefit from the support.”

On now until October 30th, Play! is offering up to $500,000 in grants to schools across Manitoba, Ontario, NWT, Nunavut and the Maritimes for the purchase of playground equipment. If chosen, Play! will match up to 33% on every dollar of your allotted playground budget to ensure you get the perfect play space for your school. Funding is given on a first come basis, so it is recommended to apply now as funds will go fast!
