CFY was founded on the belief that keeping our youth active in a variety of recreational athletics programs today plays a key role in developing well-rounded leaders of tomorrow. We do not believe that any child should be turned away due to financial constraints, and that the programs they engage in should be well equipped to provide the most valuable experiences possible. We are proud to partner with some of the most outstanding organizations in our community to deliver on our shared values through grant funding.
Support is offered through a variety of categories including:
- Athlete scholarship reimbursement
- Equipment supplement
- Travel Assistance
- Additional special/emergency requests
Grant requests are accepted throughout the year on a rolling basis as outlined in our guidelines, first reviewed by our Grants Committee before being presented to our full Board of Trustees for final approval. We are always looking to establish new relationships with organizations that support our mission and encourage all Tampa Bay area youth programs with existing needs to apply. We do not follow a rigid framework of historical giving, but a competitive application process based on current needs of the communities we serve.
