PLAY 60, Play On
The 50 Fund, The NFL Foundation, and KaBOOM!


Do you have big ideas for unique play opportunities but lack the funding to execute them?

KaBOOM!, with the NFL Foundation and the 50 Fund, the legacy fund of the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee, is proud to announce the PLAY 60, Play On Grant Program. As a national non-profit dedicated to ensuring all kids get active and balanced play, we’ve heard the call. Kids and families want play everywhere. Through PLAY 60, Play On, we are committed to enabling creative play advocates across the Bay Area to help make play everywhere a reality. Applications are being accepted September 17th – October 19th, with grants being awarded in two phases. To give your project the best chance at funding, start an application now!

We are now accepting applications for grants ranging from $2,000 - $150,000 to create playful transformations of sidewalks and spaces that encourage kids’ active play to happen everywhere. Groups applying should consider creative ways to activate sidewalks, pocket parks, bus stops, and other highly-utilized areas so parents and caretakers can include more play in their children’s daily lives.

A 60-minute webinar will also be held on September 23, 2015 at 9:30am PST to provide examples of the types of projects that will be considered for funding and to answer questions regarding the application process. The webinar will be recorded and made available at
