It’s all about relationships. The Playmaker Program partners with schools, hospitals, social service agencies and enrichment programs across the U.S. and Haiti. Together, we harness the power of optimism to help more kids in need.

There are many ways we partner with childcare organizations – from single workshops to multi-phase partnerships aimed at building communities of practice within an organization.

We know that many of our partners do deep work without deep pockets, and we fundraise to be able to offer sliding scale approach. In order to ensure that funds are used responsibly, we select partners based on their alignment with our mission, the buy-in of leadership and potential impact in numbers served.
