In 1994, the Orlando Magic expanded its longtime commitment to Central Florida and established the Orlando Magic Youth Fund with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
The McCormick Foundation matches all donations to the Orlando Magic Youth Fund at fifty cents on the dollar. With the Orlando Magic and the Foundation paying all campaign and administrative expenses, one hundred percent of all donations, plus the match is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations.
All organizations undergo a thorough screening during the grant application process to ensure that only high-quality programs with proven results receive funding.
Since inception, more than $14 million in grants has been distributed through the Orlando Magic Youth Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund improving the lives of those in need and transforming the community.
