Play Grants

The Toy Foundation™ believes our willingness to relieve the suffering of others defines us as individuals and an industry.

The Play Grants program is focused on delivering the extraordinary physical, emotional, and educational benefits of play to all children in need, including at children’s hospitals which serve disadvantaged communities and in response to emergency situations. We have helped improve pediatric care for 360,000 children since 2021 and impacted countless more children internationally.

To support Toy Association™ members in incorporating play into a child’s treatment plan or responding quickly to emergent situations, this program offers scalable product and monetary donation opportunities tailored for companies of all sizes to achieve a greater measurable impact together.
