Budgeting and Grants

Find the Resources to Create the Play Spaces You Want

A big part of building any play space is ensuring that you have the financial resources to buy high-quality equipment that has been tested for safety and performance.

There are a number of ways to get the money you need to cover the costs of the purchasing and installing new equipment for your playground project:

  • Raise the funds through events such as bake sales, car washes, or asking for donations or sponsorships from local residents, community organizations, or businesses
  • Apply for grants from the local, state or federal government, large businesses or non-profit organizations
  • Lease your playground equipment instead of purchasing it

What’s in a Price?

When you’re building a playground, trying to cut corners does not work. Buying based on price alone can mean you end up with equipment that does not have the same safety features or is not as durable, meaning you’ll need to consider replacement costs sooner. Making a purchase based on price alone can also mean you get equipment that may not assist children with their development or inspire them to play. It is not a bargain if no kids want to use the playground, or it doesn’t last very long.

The solution is to think quality first. Well-built play equipment from Miracle Recreation is innovative, durable and thrilling. We design the playgrounds children and local organizations including churches, schools, campgrounds, daycares, and parks want to have in their community.
