The Community Grants 2022 partners have now been announced. Thank you for your unparalleled work to strengthen Greater Miami.
The Miami Foundation is grateful to invest in a stronger, more equitable Greater Miami every year through our Community Grants program. Community Grants is a permanent resource for Greater Miami, made possible by generous donors who trust the Foundation to address our community’s most pressing needs and greatest opportunities.
Guided by input from community, our programs are constantly growing and evolving to serve residents throughout Miami-Dade County. In 2022, we partnered with a network of philanthropists to grow the amount of funds available for our community. We will continue to prioritize principles of trust–based philanthropy to support our nonprofit partners as they strengthen our community and advance equity of all Miami residents. Learn more about the 2022 Community Grants partners here.
While the 2022 Community Grants program has passed, we invite you to review the program materials to learn more about the Foundation’s signature annual community investment program. We welcome your feedback and outreach to learn more. The 2023 program is anticipated to open in January 2023.

In 2022, we invested over $2.5 million across the six categories below.
Our priorities align with our values that we hope to model together with our nonprofit partners. Our priorities also guide proposal review, so we encourage you to review this section as you consider a proposal.
Eligibility Requirements: Eligible applicants are nonprofits with an active 501(c)(3) status as a public charity or projects with an established fiscal sponsor that has this status. Government entities and tax-exempt organizations are also eligible. The proposed work must primarily serve Miami-Dade County residents. If you have a current grant through any Foundation program, you must be in compliance with that grant to apply.
Grant Size: The maximum grant award is $30,000.
Types of Funding: Nonprofits can select from two funding options. All grants are considered general funding to be used at the nonprofit’s discretion to support the proposed goals.
Community Grants is a two-stage program: an initial Idea Stage and a Full Proposal Stage for invited applicants based on review of the submitted applications. The Foundation engages proposal review committees to guide grant selection to ensure rich perspectives from people with personal and professional experiences related to each funding category. Grant decisions for the 2022 program were shared in early June. The 2023 program is anticipated to open in January 2023.
