The Miami Foundation is privileged to work with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support the administration and management of their complex grant programs. We provide a variety of services to the Knight Foundation and its grantee partners including fiscal agency, fiscal sponsorship, endowment management, and multi-funder initiative management.

If you are

Once approval of the project is finalized, an agreement will be finalized with The Miami Foundation.  Depending on the nature of your grant, your organization will receive either a fiscal agency agreement, endowment agreement, or a standard grant agreement.  All signed agreements should be submitted via Submittable here.

Grant Reporting

Your agreement will outline the timeline for reporting on your grant. If you need a grant or reporting extension, please contact both your primary contact at Knight Foundation as well as The Miami Foundation via email to explain the nature of your extension request. All grant reports should be submitted here.
