Celebrating Our Supporters

  1. Updates

Thanks to these corporate partners and supporters for being champions in helping Playworks through the challenges we have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. With their help, we have been working to bring safe and healthy play to kids, and to adapt our programs to meet the evolving needs of our schools, educators, and children.

“While fundraising events were canceled, the commitment from our corporate partners and donors has remained unwavering. Thank you for your continued generous support and for being a part of our Playworks community.” – Playworks President Elizabeth Cushing

Kids who play are resilient, empathetic, and active. Through play, kids learn to make friends, solve problems, and believe in themselves. Even in hard times.

For 24 years, Playworks has been working to ensure every child feels included, is active, and builds valuable social and emotional skills through play. It is with the help of these generous partners that we will be there for kids today and for the years to come.
