The CarMax Foundation announced the renewal of its partnership with Kaboom.


The CarMax Foundation's additional investment of $4.4 million will help Kaboom transform the future of play for kids that need it most. 


The partners will build upon their existing commitment to create opportunities for kids to develop skills through active play, reaching 170,000 more kids by the end of 2021. Additionally, The CarMax Foundation will fund a new program to invest in innovation for Kaboom including the research and development of new play experiences.
Starting in January, The CarMax Foundation and Kaboom will:


• Create a total of 68 new playspaces including 24 playgrounds.
• Continue supporting military communities through grants during a Military Week of Play.
• Invest in sports courts, a new offering from Kaboom that provides a place for all kids to play sports.
• Deploy Rigamajigs that stimulate creative thinking and problem-solving skills through experiential play and hands-on, active learning.
• Team up on research and development projects to innovate play for the future, especially for kids in economically challenged neighborhoods.
