As of the end of 2017, KaBOOM! has directly built over 3,000 playgrounds. Combined with our other grants over our 20+ year history, KaBOOM! has built or improved over 17,000 playspaces.Our unique model, called Build it with KaBOOM!, pairs funding partners with under-resourced communities who come together to build safe playgrounds – in just one day – resulting in kids feeling valued. Our community-built playgrounds generate a tangible, achievable win for communities too familiar with broken promises, too much talk and little, if any, action.
