Everyone Plays

Everyone Plays Flyer (Instagram Post)The City of Stanton is proud to announce the “Everyone Plays!” Scholarship Program! Our Community Services Department strives to be inclusive, with recreation opportunities for all our residents. We understand that from time-to-time families may encounter some unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances. The program is designed to provide supplemental financial assistance as a resource after other available sources of funding have been utilized.

We would like to thank Frontier Real Estate Investments, W Power and Townsend Public Affairs for their generous donations that allow us to provide this community benefit program. 

City of Stanton residents or students in a Stanton-serving school district, who are experiencing financial difficulty or who are in a unique hardship situation may apply. If you are in need of financial assistance, but do not meet the below requirements, please contact the Community Services Department at (714) 890-4270. All requests for scholarships will be reviewed and considered on a case-by-case basis. Please see scholarship qualifications below: 

  • Stanton resident, or attend a school in the Magnolia, Savanna or Garden Grove School District
  • School-aged children should qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch at their current school
  • Recipients must be youth under 18 years old, or adults 50 & older 

Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis until funds have been exhausted. Once awarded, families will receive a $50 credit per qualifying family member for three consecutive quarters (Winter/Spring, Summer, and Fall). These funds can be used for recreation classes only (not for facility rentals, etc.) At the end of the three quarters, any unused credits will be removed from the account and the family will need to submit a new application. Once awarded, recipients can sign up for classes online at or in person at City Hall, Stanton Central Park or the Family Resource Center.    

Required documentation includes proof of residency through a state-issued identification card, City water bill, rental agreement or proof of free or reduced-price lunch program through the Magnolia, Savanna or Garden Grove School Districts. If the child is not school age, please contact the Community Services Department.
