Giving Back: Re-imagine and Re-define Play with Us

If you run a community foundation, family foundation, or company and are interested in “giving back” in a profound and meaningful way, we’d like to hear from you!
Magical Bridge Foundation partners with City Parks and Recreation Departments, Community Foundations, Family Foundations, Private Donors, and Corporate Partners to design and build innovative playgrounds where everyone plays together. We are currently seeking funding partners to help build additional Magical Bridge Playgrounds in the Bay Area — and to develop a national program to proliferate our innovative playground model to communities across the United States.

Working with Magical Bridge Foundation means you will:

  • Leverage Success: we pour our extensive experience in research, development, design, and construction strategies into every Magical Bridge Playground
  • Increase Value: we capture the spirit of each unique community and utilize local talent and labor to deliver cost-effective, sustainable and time-efficient results.
  • Engage Community: we ignite the entire community from neighbors to city officials and local organizations to broaden our reach and sustain the playground’s success.
  • Maximize Social Good: our fully accessible, innovative and inclusive playgrounds give local families, schools and special needs organizations the chance to play side by side for the very first time.
We have a great interest in expanding Magical Bridge Playgrounds around the globe!  We hope you will join us on the journey to change play forever, giving everyBODY a chance to play, regardless of ability, disability, size or age.

Our “Magical” Sponsorship programs include:

PRIVATE DONORS & FAMILY FOUNDATIONS

Sponsor a play zone and leave a lasting legacy with naming rights on the playground that will touch countless lives with joy, kindness, and compassion. For donations under $2000, please donate online. For larger donations, please complete and send this form and make your check payable to UnaMesa Association. Forms should be sent to: UnaMesa Association Attn: Magical Bridge Foundation 654 Gilman Street Palo Alto, CA 94301

CORPORATE MATCHING

Many employers sponsor matching grant programs and will match charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. To find out if your company has an employee matching gift policy, please contact your company’s human resources or workplace giving department. If your company is eligible, request a matching grant form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We’ll do the rest! The impact of your gift to Magical Bridge Foundation may be doubled or possibly tripled, and some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

WORKPLACE GIVING & EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Magical Bridge Foundation works closely with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) teams to make a positive impact on and off our playgrounds!  Contact us to organize a workplace “lunch and learn” event or a single-day volunteer or team-building activity on the playground at Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto. Begin a giving campaign with coworkers and friends to collectively show your support with a sponsored play zone or a tile on our donor wall — or approach your employee giving department to begin a corporate matching campaign.
