We Have Trips

On Sunday, we were honored to take a hard-working single mother and her three children out on a boating adventure. This was possible because of the people who donated money during our #GivingTuesday Fundraiser. We have more trips available to deserving families. We hope that our Collier County community will participate in looking around for the next hard-working single parent family for us. This mom was found by a kind patron where she is a waitress. A few conversations later, we received a request to award this wonderful woman with a trip for her and her wonderful family. They all had so much fun on their boating adventure. Pay attention to those wonderful people around you. Let us know, you can be a part of something very special.

You can send us an e-mail at or you can send us a message on Facebook at: Southern Waves Youth Foundation. Just click on the link to take you there.

Our new brochures are in!

We had a busy day yesterday distributing our new brochure out around the Naples area.  We wanted to share it with our on-line supporters too.  Right now SWYF has no paid employees.  We are all here because we know that these programs have and will help families and make us a stronger community.  We are in need of volunteers to help us get the word out and find people who really want to be a part of some positive change in the world.  If you know families we can help, tell us about them by e-mailing us or sending us a message on Facebook.  If you want more information about how you can help call 239-207-8807.

Thank You

#GivingTuesday was a success!  The goal was to be able to give a struggling family a trip to start 2016 off right.  We are happy to say that three families will be getting this gift.  Unfortunately there were some technical issues with PayPal and web browsers throughout the day, so we REALLY appreciate the time that had to be put in to get donations we received.  If you still want to donate to our #GivingTuesday campaign, it is not too late.  Any check that comes to us before 12/9/15 will go towards another family getting a trip. Any donations after that will go towards getting more programs up and running for 2016.  We appreciate your support!
You can mail donations to:

Happy #GivingTuesday!! 

PayPal is operating a little slower than usual today, which means a lot of people are out there giving!  Thank you for your patience. If you are donating to us from your computer the tabs are easy to find, but if you are donating to us from your phone, sorry, the links are much harder to get to.  You will need to go to the web version of and go to downward arrow next to the home tab the top of the page, then proceed to the donation page.  Sorry about the inconvenience.  We appreciate you putting in the time to donate!
