Partnerships to Help You Get the Playgrounds You Need

Miracle® Recreation is proud to partner with some of the most highly respected organizations in the industry. These influential partners share our desire to inspire play, and by putting our minds together, we can continue to encourage play as a part of healthy living for many generations to come.

Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, inclusive living, and family support for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant organization that has grown from one original chapter to more than 3,500 chapters worldwide. Today, Best Buddies’ programs engage participants in each of the 50 states and in 45 countries, positively impacting the lives of nearly 1.3 million people with and without disabilities around the world. In many cases, as a result of their involvement with Best Buddies, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities secure rewarding jobs, live on their own, become inspirational leaders, and make lifelong friendships.

Founded in 1899, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is the national professional association for landscape architects, representing more than 15,000 members in 49 professional chapters and 68 student chapters. Their mission is to lead, to educate, and to participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. Visit the ASLA website.

To further our commitment to bringing playgrounds to communities in need all over the US, Miracle Recreation is partnering with KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to saving play for America’s children. KaBOOM! not only serves as a resource for communities to find vendors for their projects, they also offer community partnerships and funding partnerships to help make playground dreams into reality.

The Make An Impact Foundation (MAIF) brings the voices of underprivileged children into the community by creating a project platform for the communities it serves. They want to create a place where all kids have equal opportunity and ability to play freely without barriers to growth, dreams and imagination.

As part of its mission, the Make An Impact Foundation and its partners, Miracle Recreation and Sinclair Broadcast Group, one of the nation’s largest and most diversified television broadcasting companies, are working to reverse the decline of outdoor play in America. This crisis of play has a negative impact on the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of kids, families and communities throughout the nation.

Through this partnership, our goal is to bring local sponsors and the community together to raise funds to build new playgrounds that will bring back the benefits of play and strengthen communities across America.
