Established in 1998 by a group of parents who craved better recreational space for their children in Marblehead. The Marblehead Family Fund has raised funds for many of the beloved playgrounds we all enjoy today, including Hobbs, the Gerry at Stramski Way, Devereux Beach, Bud Orne, and Seaside. Some of our other local projects also include the telescope at Chandler Hovey Park, the Spyglass at Fort Sewell, and now the communication boards at many of our local playgrounds.

In 2024 in partnership with the Town of Marblehead's Recreation & Parks Department and the Power of Speech, our organizations worked together to fundraise, design, and install communication boards at some of the playgrounds in Marblehead. Check out our News page to learn more details!

We're looking forward to fundraising for our next major project and repairs to existing playground equipment and appreciate your ongoing donations to the cause. Your philanthropic generosity will continue to create safe, inclusive, and fun spaces for our children and future generations.
