For nearly 50 years, our Fundholders’ generous contributions have enabled us to shape Miami’s brilliant future through grantmaking. We work with various entities – donors who endowed Funds and partners like the Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney and the National LGBTQ Task Force – who make these grant programs possible. Through their philanthropy, we have granted almost $300 million to enhance quality of life for all Miamians. Scroll through this page to view all our grant programs.
