Your Tax Deductible Donation Saves Lives

PYFC's program model has decreased youth violence in our City and individual donations play a crucial part in our success. Donations can be made on this web page by clicking the "DONATE" button and completing the required information. You can make a larger impact by inviting five friends and family to match your donation. Simply let people know why you are donating to PYFC and encourage them to do the same by visiting:

Download An Original Song and Help Keep PYFC Open!

Imagine that you can keep a youth center open by listening to music! PYFC is home to the City's first ever public recording studio where youth have created more than 100 original songs. These songs can be downloaded for $1. Click here to listen and download an original song created by our youth and help keep PYFC open for future youth and artists in need of a free recording studio.



Experience the Power of Culture and Unity

PYFC hosts various culturally empowering events for the entire community. Check out our events page and plan on attending an event that interests you. We are also looking for auction items and sponsors for these events. Donors and sponsors are acknowledged at these events. Ask your employer to be a sponsor or donate a certificate for our silent auction.

Annual Report

Major Accomplishents


Unlike many other non-profits where donations get spent on expensive overhead and salaries, at PYFC your donation reaches its intended target: underserved youth. PYFC's annual budget in 2016-17 is $310,000 and more than half of our funding comes from donations, sponsors and grants. Our commitment to transparency has earned PYFC a gold status on Guidestar! Every donation is tax deductible and we appreciate donors who take the time to visit our youth center to see their donation reaching the youth we serve. "Invest in your future, support our youth." 


Pico Youth & Family Center was awarded a $25,000 Grant from Providence Saint John's Health Center to Support Underserved Youth!
