It’s Time to Celebrate Play!

Our annual Give Play campaign is almost here! This year, we’re celebrating the powerful impact play can have on individual and community health. From improving physical and mental health outcomes, to increasing a city’s livability, the benefits of increasing opportunities for play and physical activity are immense.

You can help us give the gift of play to our community through Civic Park. By supporting our Give Play campaign, you will help expand opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to reap the benefits of physical activity.

The campaign will begin with a full day of events and giveaways on Giving Tuesday (November 27). The celebration will continue through December 31 with fundraisers at local businesses, raffle prizes, contests, and more. Stay tuned for weekly event announcements on our website and social media pages throughout the campaign.

New this year, we are excited to announce that donors to the Give Play campaign will receive a coupon for a free 16-ounce drink from The Human Bean! 

Facebook and Paypal have also announced that they will match the first $7 million in donations made to nonprofits through Facebook on Giving Tuesday! Click here for more information on this opportunity.
