The Gwen Cherry Park Foundation, Inc. was established in 1997 as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization to provide leadership in fundraising to support programming at the NFL YET Center. The Foundation works with its community partners to ensure that people in the neighborhood receive first class park programming and facilities. The Foundation is led by a Board of Directors that sets policy for raising and spending financial contributions to support the work on behalf of the community, particularly our youth, who are serviced by the NFL YET Center. The ultimate goal of the Foundation is to build an endowment large enough to guarantee that there is a perpetual fund for the vital programs at the NFL YET Center
The mission of the Gwen Cherry Park Foundation is to fully fund an endowment to guarantee adequate funding at the NFL YET Miami thereby insuring financial support to the academic, health, cultural, social and athletic programming at the NFL YET Miami in perpetuity.
