ARP Funds for Parks, Fundraising Programs, Park Grants and Purchasing Contracts for Municipal Splash Pads
Don’t let funding be the obstacle that keeps your community’s water play dreams from becoming a reality. We offer fundraising programs and park grant resources to make fundraising effective and hassle free. Landscape Structures also offers a wide variety of purchasing contracts to avoid the bid process and expedite the steps for purchasing your splash pad.
ARP Funds for Parks – Use the ARP (American Rescue Plan) and CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) Act funds to enhance your outdoor spaces, build stronger neighborhoods and communities, and/or address increased maintenance needs. We can help you plan for a new community play area or improve existing play areas, develop outdoor fitness environments for teens and adults, enhance your outdoor spaces with commercial shade structures, create a community splash pad or create a plan for regular maintenance checks.
Purchasing contracts – Any non-profit 501c or tax-based agency can simplify the purchasing process by taking advantage of buying cooperatives or our GSA contract. These nationwide government procurement contracts are compliant with state bidding statutes because they have been awarded through a competitive, public bidding process. Our GSA Contract Number is GS-07F-0440N.
Park and Playground grants – Many organizations allocate funds for splash pad projects and several federal and state programs award grants for park equipment. Our grant guide includes listings of federal and state programs as well as grants offered by corporations and organizations. We will also give you tips on how to write a community grant proposal that gets noticed.
Fundraising – We will introduce you to new ways to help fund your community splash pad. From scratch-off games to walk-a-thons, we can help you set up a highly profitable fundraising program.
These are more traditional funding methods, but there is also the option of finding partnerships with local, like-minded organizations, such as Kiwanis® International clubs and Rotary International, the Y, or local school and library districts. There is nearly always money available, you just have to know where to look.
