Thanks to our philanthropic partners, who support Playworks to continue to carry out our mission of providing safe, healthy, and meaningful play for students across Southern California every day.

Playworks’ partners transform schools by providing crucial support to create safe, inclusive environments at recess and throughout the school day. Together, we strengthen the social, emotional and physical development of our children, empowering them to thrive. Support levels range from one-time gifts, sponsoring one of our interscholastic developmental sports leagues or school-wide involvement to regional support and even national initiatives.
