However a school, home owner’s association, or community chooses to raise money for their new playground, it is important that they ask for help.

ParknPool, the leading online distributor of commercial outdoor furnishings and site amenities, knows that sometimes the funds necessary to provide children with playground equipment that is needed to help them grow and learn can be a tough road. In order to fully exceed their clients’ expectations and enhance their earnings, ParknPool has compiled a guide concerning the best ways to raise money through fundraising and the steps that should be taken.

Their three-page guide touches on a handful of fundraising options including the “adopt” a part of the playground program. This fundraising possibility encourages involvement from local businesses and community service organizations. If choosing to participate in an “adopt” a part of the playground program, ParknPool suggests creating a sketch or plan of the potential play area’s layout in which each major component is identified and priced. Funds are raised by taking the sketch around to businesses, organizations, parents and communities and asking them to “adopt” a part of the playground. Developing a way for the donors to be recognized whether on a single sign placed at the entrance to the play area or at each “adopted” unit, is a great way to help with your fundraising efforts.

Other fundraising suggestions are also mentioned in ParknPool’s Playground Fundraising Guide such as selling bricks of a sidewalk that will be inscribed with a child’s name and hosting a penny/coin drive. “However a school, home owner’s association, or community chooses to raise money for their new playground, it is important that they ask for help, “explained Laura Dudley, ParknPool’s Marketing Manager, “That’s why this guide was created, to assist our clients in raising and budgeting the money needed to provide children with the proper place to grow and learn.”

ParknPool Corporation, also specializing in picnic tables, trash receptacles, park benches and bleachers, offers playgrounds and playground equipment for ages 2-12.
