OMYF | Grant Ceremony

History

At the heart of the Magic's charitable efforts is the work done by the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation (OMYF), which is committed to helping children in Central Florida realize their full potential, especially those most at-risk, by supporting nonprofit organizations offering youth-based programs in the areas of arts, education, health and wellness, and homelessness.

Over the last 33 years, more than $29 million has been distributed to local nonprofit community organizations through OMYF. The Foundation raises community dollars annually through donations from individuals, fundraising events, and programs that include the Orlando Wine Festival and Auction, OMYF Open Golf Tournament, State of Florida License Plate Program, Employee Giving Campaign, 50/50 Raffle and E-Auctions.
