As The Miami Foundation gears up for Give Miami Day 2015, we want every nonprofit equipped with the tools for success. Last year, more than 13,000 donors supported 520 nonprofit organizations, raising $5.2 million in the biggest annual giving event in South Florida history. We’re anticipating an even more exciting event this year, so here are the three essential things your organization should know for a successful Give Miami Day campaign:

1. We have a new registration platform:
This year, the Foundation launched a new platform called Nonprofit Central, a year-round resource to easily learn more information about organizations doing important work in Miami-Dade County.

Creating a profile on Nonprofit Central also serves as your registration for Give Miami Day. To register, visit the Give Miami Day Nonprofit Toolkit. All returning participants must re-register for this year’s event through Nonprofit Central.

2. We provide resources to help you:
Have you attended a Give Miami Day training session? These are opportunities to learn best practices and useful strategies from other nonprofits. To RSVP for our upcoming sessions, visit the Give Miami Day Nonprofit Toolkit.

The Nonprofit Toolkit also includes additional resources, such as a planning timeline, logos, graphics and webinar versions of the training sessions.

The Foundation is here to support you throughout the planning process. To reach us, call our main line at 305.371.2711 or email

3. There are perks for nonprofits that register early:

In order to participate in Give Miami Day, your organization’s profile must be approved byThursday, October 29 at 4 p.m. We highly encourage you to get started on your registration today: if your profile is approved by October 15, your nonprofit could be selected for a table at our Community Block Party.

That’s right — join us on Give Miami Day, 5 p.m. at Marlins Park. We’ll have food trucks, games, live performances and raffle prizes for the entire community to enjoy; you won’t want to miss it. This event is free and open to everyone, so come celebrate another historic Miami Moment.

Give Miami Day is a local effort that spans the city, nation and globe. Thank you for your dedication to South Florida’s largest annual giving event. We know that this year’s Give Miami Day will be one to remember, and we can’t wait to see Miami-Dade nonprofits make history again.
