All Kids Play is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. Any monetary contributions are tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt.
Monetary donations allow us to get more kids from under-resourced families and communities in the game by paying for registration fees, equipment, uniforms, and other associated costs.
Families and communities who lack sufficient resources to pay for youth sports registration fees, equipment, uniforms, and other associated costs benefit from our financial assistance program. We are currently focused on youth athletes in the Northeastern Illinois / Chicagoland area, but we also consider grants nationally.
All Kids Play has a comprehensive application process that evaluates each family’s needs and situation. “We use the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services” “Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program’s” income guidelines as a household income benchmark. Grant applications are addressed on a needs and first-come, first-served basis as funds are available.
In order to keep our overhead low and direct as much funding as possible toward our grant program, we currently do not accept or store new or used sports equipment. When a grant recipient needs a piece of equipment, All Kids Play purchases the item and arranges for delivery to or pick-up by the athlete’s family.
Yes, there are many ways to volunteer for All Kids Play! We periodically need volunteers to help with fundraising events and interns to aid our all-volunteer staff. Students can also organize a school, team or group fundraiser to help All Kids Play get more kids in the game. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out all the ways you can help at our Get Involved page.
