Support means “give assistance to”
Synonyms for support are help, aid, assist, contribute to, fund, and finance
There are many ways you can “support” your Center! You can give a financial donation, have your business sponsor an event or sport, volunteer your time, or buy Center Swag where a portion is given back to The Center!
With your support we can change lives.
The Center of Anna Maria Island’s mission is to serve as the community’s gathering place where people of all ages: children, teens, adults, and seniors can come together and make friends. At The Center they may play sports, be apart of our Beyond the Classroom after school program, come to work out, enjoy an afternoon tea for companionship. We know that people sometimes need help in order to participate in these activities and so we offer a sliding fee scale for those who qualify…we will NEVER turn anyone away for their inability to pay. To make a donation you can mail a check to The Center at PO BOX 253 Anna Maria, FL 34216 or click the link to make a donation online. If you have questions or want more information please contact our Executive Director, Christopher Culhane, at 941.778.1908 ext. 216 or [email protected].

Marketing and sponsorships are important to both you and The Center. Your sponsorship helps support and MOVE THE CENTER, while also ensuring that no one is ever turned away for their inability to pay.
The Center seeks fun-loving sponsors that share a passion for an active lifestyle, as well as an interest in supporting local youth through sport. Oh, and maybe a few that just like to get together and socialize …by partnering to support one of our cool special events!
We all know that sponsoring a program or event is a great way to market your company’s products or services. The hard part is deciding which event or program that may be. If you think about it, finding the ideal match for your company to sponsor is kind of like dating. You have to shop around until you find one that fits your personality and shares your beliefs and values.
With close to 10 events per year and a growing variety of sports and programs…The Center is bound to have a match for you!!
Volunteers Make the World A Better Place
The Center of Anna Maria is focusing on the talents and skills of our community members and reaching out for your support. The Center’s goal is to offer effective training, offer interesting and meaningful work, provide a place for social connections to make new friends, and hopefully be a place to learn something new.
We will be tracking volunteer hours regularly and hosting an annual appreciation event recognizing those that have been a vital part of our success and in turn will offer certain “Volunteer Benefits” throughout the year including complimentary day passes, program registrations, and event tickets.
