Check out our blog to read about what the award meant to her and what it was like to prepare and give a speech in front of 400 people at our Annual Current/Sherman Group Champions for Children Gala.

MWYF is able to provide outstanding programs and services to Jacksonville's at-risk youth through generous donations from people like you. Unrestricted gifts allow us to address our most critical needs. However, we have a select number of unique and meaningful programs that are also funded through donor support. Contributions are tax deductible.        



Our Annual Gala recognizes our student athletes for all of their hard work and success on and off the tennis court. We hope that you will join us at this year's Annual Gala to witness some of the amazing accomplishments of our brightest student-athletes. Check back for info on our 2019 Gala. Dates are usually set mid-spring.
