This is your chance to give something back by empowering at-risk, disadvantaged and handicapped youth ages 8-18 with positive life skills, alternative life paths and a sense of shaping the world around them. The FFA uses fishing and other water sports as a vehicle for delivering these lessons while weaving effective environmental skills into engaging, educational curriculum. By providing a new start to our most vulnerable children, you demonstrate your commitment and gratitude to the entire community.

Your gift puts you in good company. When you make a gift to FAA, you stand among Palm Beach County’s most highly respected foundations and our community’s most caring partners: Children’s Services Council, United Way, Prime Time Palm Beach County, Marine Industries Association, Nonprofits First, Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, Chops Lobster Bar & Fish Market and many other caring, generous individuals and businesses.
Your gift stays right here in Palm Beach County. At a time when your mailbox is overflowing with requests for contributions, it’s comforting to know that your gift to FAA will directly benefit your own community.
You will change lives. Think of the children. Think of the families. Think of the difference FAA’s Botvin Lifeskills Training Program can make. This program has been proven to dramatically reduce the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs and teach kids a sense of accomplishment, skill, the joy of success in mastering an art form and, most importantly, self- esteem.
