09 Nov THE MIAMI FOUNDATION PREPARES FOR 24 HOURS OF NON-STOP GENEROSITY ON GIVE MIAMI DAY
November 15 event prepares to hit another multi-million-dollar goal, benefitting more than 750 Miami-Dade County charities
WHAT: Will Miami do it again? On Give Miami Day, Miamians will once again try to beat their own record, during one of the biggest annual giving events in the Southeast U.S. Last year, the 24-hour charitable donation campaign raised more than $10.1 million for nearly 700 nonprofit organizations. On Give Miami Day, anyone can make a philanthropic impact by supporting area nonprofit organizations.
Throughout the day, individuals may view online profiles of hundreds of nonprofits serving Miami-Dade County and make a charitable donation directly on givemiamiday.org. The Miami Foundation and its partners, including Knight Foundation and the William R. Watts Foundation, will maximize the community’s generosity by making a bonus gift for every donation between $25 and $10,000 received on November 15 through givemiamiday.org. A record 758 organizations have registered to participate.
WHEN: Give Miami Day begins at 12 a.m. on November 15 and ends at 12 a.m. on November 16, 2018.
