Help Us Bring out the Best in Kids—Through Play.
Every child deserves a place on the playground—to grow, thrive, and learn. You have a part to play.
Playworks is able to bring out the best in kids thanks to the support and involvement of the whole community. By joining our team, donating, or sponsoring Playworks, you can help ensure that every kid gets to play every day. Your support helps kids find their superpowers on the playground.
Three Ways to Support Play
1. Join the Rock Paper Givers Society (RPGS), Playworks’ premier giving society for major donors who are deeply committed to bringing safe, healthy play to every child. This society connects members more actively to our staff, to our schools, and to each other.
2. Explore planned giving options to help the next generation thrive.
3. Join the High Five Club! As a member of the High Five Club, you’ll join Playworks Wisconsin’s network of monthly givers who know that consistent support is critical for nonprofits as they pursue their vision. Join now!
