Playground Grant Opportunities
Watch out for GRANT ILLUSIONS!
Grants are used by some playground manufacturers to fish for projects and bait clients into purchasing quickly before giving real consideration to quality, longevity, personalized design and play value. These deceptive marketing tactics are not really grants, just inflated, limited-choice, package designs that are then discounted back down to the actual price.
A true grant benefits the people receiving the grant, not a monetary benefit for those giving the “grant.” There are many REAL grant programs out there and we are here to help guide you through that process.
Ask for Comparable Structure Designs and Cost Comparison from Other Manufacturers!
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING….Make sure you are getting value for your dollar! If the grant requires specific equipment and design, make sure the pricing is not inflated. Most of the time you can get BETTER equipment with higher play value and LONGER return on investment – with no tricks. Ask us today for a price comparison and an in-depth review on the play value of each component.
