Partnerships For Play
We know purchasing new playground equipment requires a lot of planning and access to funds. Superior Recreational Products provides a variety of playground funding options to help you achieve a play environment that meets the needs of your community. Not only do we offer a FREE state-by-state grant guide, we also offer our Partnerships For Play program. Our Partnerships For Play program consists of two resources: matching funds catered towards schools and child cares and a crowdfunding guide.
Matching Funds Grant Program
In an effort to provide better play opportunities for children attending school or a child care center or living within smaller municipality, Superior Recreational Products offers a matching funds program between the months of August and October (August 1 to October 31). Eligible schools, child care centers, or municipalities may apply to become a partner in play and receive matching funding towards their next recreational equipment purchase. During the application window, schools, child care centers, and smaller municipalities may apply through our application link on this page. These grants are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
How Matching Funds Work
Our Partnerships For Play Matching Funds Program is available for eligible schools, child care centers, and smaller municipalities (those with a population of 15,000 and under) throughout the United States. If approved, you can receive up to 100% matching funds towards the purchase of structures within our Partnerships For Play program. See our terms and conditions at the bottom of this page.

Crowdfunding Made Easy
Planning a successful crowdfunding campaign for a new commercial playground project can be difficult and time-consuming. We have broken down that process to make it easy for you! As part of our Partnerships For Play program, we've developed a FREE crowdfunding guide created to help you design and raise money for your playground project. The platform works with you and your SRP Certified Partner to plan and execute a successful crowdfunding campaign for your project.
How does it work?
The campaign has a four-phase structure to collect important information through planning, recruiting, engagement, and execution. From start to finish, this process takes place over the time frame of 8 weeks to create a successful crowdfunding campaign for your commercial playground.
- Planning: Set clear goals for your campaign. We work closely with you and your SRP Certified Partner to set up clear campaign goals and your crowdfunding site.
- Recruiting: Build awareness through soft launch. Host events such as a PTA launch party or pep rally to excite parents and students. You could even have your SRP Certified Partner come out to present!
- Engagement: Time to launch your campaign. Through multiple touchpoints, you launch your campaign to the community through printed posters, emails, social media, etc.
- Execution: Create hype to raise big funds. Different ways to create hype would be to offer prizes for money amounts raised, press releases, etc. News coverage has often worked for past projects!
