The CFY mission is delivered principally through our grant program, available throughout the year to Pinellas County youth organizations of all athletic and arts disciplines. The goal is to provide impactful programming the financial resources to expand access to children from all economic backgrounds, enabling a variety of skill-building programs to offer reduced registration fees to participants in their programs. Additional funding is available to help offset costs of upgraded sporting equipment, safety measures, and other expenses associated with travel competitions.
Donations to CFY are distributed to groups across the county through this program, connecting those who are passionate about creating and sustaining positive youth experiences to an extensive network of providers committed to healthy growth and development.
Grant Awards account for nearly 75% of CFY’s overall community investment!
