    Good morning, first if all, thank you for leading the charge in supporting our community as it begins to rebuild after Hurricane Irma. Will these funds be available as part of a grant program (with an application process), or will they be administered and distributed internally by the Foundation?

      Hi Nikki,

      Thanks for your question! We are working with our local partners to identify critical nonprofits driving recovery efforts throughout Greater Miami and beyond. We don’t have a typical application process, but we are quickly gathering info about key needs on the ground and the organizations taking action to address them. If you would like to recommend a nonprofit for support, email us at

    Good morning.

    While I am not in a position to make a monetary donation, I have several boxes of assorted items I’d like to donate to the Caribbean Relief. Is there an option to donate goods? If so, where should the boxes be shipped to?
