High Fives on a Monthly Basis

  1. Updates

Remember recess and the way kickball and jump rope brightened your day? Unfortunately, recess time has been reduced in many communities, and thousands of kids lack the opportunity to play every day. However, you can help us achieve our vision of giving every child the opportunity to play every day by giving a monthly High Five. Starting  October 2011, Playworks Metro Boston will launch the "High 5 Club", a monthly giving program that will enable you to easily make monthly gifts to Playworks Metro Boston.

With an ongoing monthly gift, you can help create a safer, more inclusive recess for 14,000 low-income elementary students across greater Boston and Revere.  You can give at any level that is comfortable and easily make changes to your monthly donation by notifying us.

And if you’re looking for even more reasons to become a member of the "High 5 Club", look no further than the surprises you could receive:

  • Personalized letters from Playworks Junior Coaches
  • Playworks t-shirts and hoodies
  • Invitations to special events
  • And even the opportunity to be a coach for a day.

More and more of our supporters are finding monthly giving to be a convenient, easy way to lend their support on a regular basis. Put your arm in the air and extend your hand, to give a high five and support the 32 schools serving 14,000 kids in greater Boston and Revere during the 2011-12 school year.
