FIYA 2020-21 Annual Giving
Giving Tuesday + our 2020 fundraising was an incredible experience and we hope you also found it to be fulfilling and rewarding knowing that you are making FIYA’s school-based athletics better than ever. We are absolutely grateful to have received such an outpouring amount of love and support from members inside and out of our community. From all of us at FIYA, THANK YOU for supporting us during #GivingTuesday and throughout this holiday season with all of your generous donations! Because of you, we were able to raise an incredible $6,000 solely from this grassroots campaign!
You still have the opportunity to positively impact our student athletes and provide the support we need to prepare to have our kids back playing school-based sports by making a tax-deductible donation. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and now more than ever, we need your support! The year 2020 proved to be one of the most unprecedented challenges around the world. Challenges that have reminded us of the critical importance of the availability of school-based athletics to students as part of their all-around learning, development and success in their educational endeavors.
