Hugh L. Adams Charitable Trust

Playground Grant

2017 Application

The Fund for Public Schools is excited to announce its fifth annual request for Hugh L. Adams Playground Grant applications. This grant was created “for the establishment of children’s playgrounds” by the Hugh L. Adams Charitable Trust.  According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “Play is integral to the academic environment. It ensures that the school setting attends to the social and emotional development of children as well as their cognitive development.”  

Deadline: May 31, 2017

As an essential part of growing up, children benefit from being active and engaging in playtime. We encourage you to apply for this grant – one elementary school will be selected per year to receive a newly renovated playground.  Each grant recipient will receive a new outdoor play system and safety surface suitable for elementary school students.
