Fifty years ago, The Miami Foundation was created to invest in the people, ideas and organizations that would help our community thrive.
On January 27th, we kicked off a yearlong celebration of the philanthropic legacy of the Foundation and our donors, announced $1 million in strategic grant investments throughout the year, and launched the Miami Forever Fund, a historic permanent endowment with a $5 million fundraising goal to support innovative solutions to issues that threaten Greater Miami’s quality of life.
How do we create a more equitable Greater Miami? Ford Foundation’s Xavier de Souza Briggs is a local native and a global expert on the topic. We brought him down here to share how philanthropies and nonprofits can find localized solutions on June 2nd at the University of Miami. Miami Herald’s Editorial Board editor Nancy Ancrum guided the conversation. A recap of the event is available on miamifoundation.org/news.
