Mission Statement

The Orlando Magic Youth Fund (OMYF) is committed to helping children in Central Florida realize their full potential, especially those most at risk, by supporting programs and partnerships that empower families and change lives.


OMYF was founded in 1988 and began a partnership with the McCormick Foundation in 1994. All donations and funds raised by OMYF are granted to the Orlando Magic Youth Fund (OMYF-MFF), a McCormick Foundation Fund, where it has an even greater impact with a match of 50 cents on the dollar. With no administrative costs and the McCormick Foundation match, 150% of your gift goes directly to benefit children in Central Florida.

In the past 25 years, over 500 local agencies have been funded, nearly $20 million dollars has been granted, with more than two million children positively impacted.

OMYF fundraising events and programs include: the OMYF Open Golf Tournament, the OMYF Black Tie & Tennies Gala, State of Florida License Plate Program, Employee Giving Campaign, and game night silent auctions.

McCormick Foundation

The Robert R. McCormick Foundation was established in 1955 under The Last Will and Testament of Col. Robert R. McCormick, long time publisher and editor of the Chicago Tribune. They are committed to fostering communities of educated, informed and engaged citizens. Their Communities Program helps to transform communities by giving underserved people access to programs which improve their lives. The McCormick Foundation partners with media outlets, sports teams and philanthropic organizations to raise money for local needs and provides matching funds to increase the impact of charitable giving.
