The Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation has established the Jay Abbott Youth Activity Fund (JAY Fund) in memory of Jay Abbott, whose life was vibrant with outdoor activity. Jay enjoyed skiing, cycling and sailing throughout his life and shared his passion with others, especially youth. The JAY Fund supports projects in these three activities that emphasize mentoring, improved coaching, training of interested volunteers, and experiences that build confidence for Bainbridge Island youth. The Jay Fund Steering Group invites local youth activity organizations to submit proposals to help fund the kind of programming in which Jay enthusiastically engaged.
