Established in 1967, The Miami Foundation is the foundation for people who are passionate about Miami.


We’ve partnered with individuals, families and corporations who have created more than 1,000 personalized, philanthropic Funds. Thanks to them and their generosity, the Foundation has awarded $350 million in grants. Today, we manage close to $350 million to address the community’s needs now for a more resilient tomorrow.


We’ve worked hard to understand Greater Miami and what makes this unique community tick. We’ve learned that the desire to make our city a better place to live rests in every Miamian. The Miami Foundation connects that passion with efforts to enhance quality of life for everyone who calls Miami home through:


  • Civic Leadership: Stepping up to shine a light on important community issues, and informing and inspiring leaders to incite action toward solutions.


  • Community Investment: Purposefully guiding Fundholder resources to invest in the people and organizations who drive social change in Miami.


  • Philanthropy: Stewarding a diverse portfolio of charitable investments and providing individualized philanthropic services, allowing people to make a positive impact through their giving.


In 2017, The Miami Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary. To mark this momentous milestone, we shared the stories of people who—like many of you—have helped shape Greater Miami and will drive it into the future. Click here to see our journey.
