Cunningham Recreation and Play 4 ALL provided us the opportunity to come together with the community, law enforcement, and fire fighters to build an incredible playground for our scholars. Healing communities through play brought together people whose relationships have been adversarial for a common purpose, play. This experience gave everyone involved a glimpse of what our world can look and sound like; it gave us hope.

As a Landscape Architect that designs many playgrounds for municipal clients, I have found Play 4 ALL an invaluable resource. Play 4 ALL can direct the fund raising efforts to supplement the project budget which provides relief for Parks Directors that don't wish to cut play elements out of the playground. The project gains community ownership when corporate and private sponsors add their resources to the cause. Victoria is great at reminding committees of the goals they have before them and then provides the tools they need to help them reach those goals.

Play 4 ALL gave us direction towards all possible avenues of fundraising in our effort to provide inclusive play to the Alton area. We've got nothing but positive feedback and support from the community in our inclusive play venture. Every day I drive by and see the playground full of a wide array of people it reminds me of how important the project was for everyone in the community.

Play 4 ALL helps us support our grant writing efforts by pointing us in the right direction, providing relevant resources, narrative information, and reviewing proposals. Play 4 ALL takes a lot of stress out of the grant writing process.

Creating play spaces for children is her passion and helping the community become a part of your project is one of her amazing talents. She thinks outside of the box and will create an easy-to-execute fundraising plan for your project! We have two very innovative play spaces that we would not have been able to fund without her help, and we also have long-lasting community partnerships that have been developed in the process.
