The First $1Million Raised for Gwendolyn’s Playground

We Did It! We Did It! $1,000,000 For Gwendolyn’s Playground! Together we raised ONE MILLION DOLLARS to create play for all!

Two years ago, we asked you to join in our BIG vision to create the first inclusive playground in Santa Barbara County and we are so grateful that you have shown up over and over again!!! From $25 donations to $150,000, we appreciate each and every one of you and your belief in us, in this project, in the power of play for all.

After witnessing firsthand through Gwendolyn’s beautiful relationships how inclusion creates a ripple effect that benefits not only for those with disabilities but also shapes the perceptions of peers, we knew a magical playground where everyone belongs was an essential place to continue Gwendolyn’s legacy. When we have experiences with difference, we think beyond ourselves. And when we start viewing differences as unique gifts, a truly inclusive world is possible.

Thanks to YOU, we are well on our way! $1 Million raised toward a kinder and more accepting future for all of us! Thanks to YOU, we are well on our way to the $5 Million needed to break ground — and in midst of so many challenges of 2020. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Next up >> the next Million! And then the next! NEVER GIVE UP.
