Community Grants is the Foundation’s signature program through which we honor more than 100 donors who created permanently endowed funds, entrusting us to support issues that mattered to them. Thanks to their generosity, the Foundation awards more than $1 million each year through the program. The grants provide support to organizations and initiatives that improve local quality of life in three focus areas: Opportunity – enabling residents who face barriers to the development of their abilities and talents to achieve their potential; Resiliency – strengthening Greater Miami’s ability to adapt to our unique environmental, growth and socio-economic challenges; and Creativity – harnessing the power of arts and culture to build community.
