The Miami Foundation Awards More Than $1 Million in Grants
Press release (June 12, 2012) — The Miami Foundation awarded more than $1 million to 62 local nonprofit organizations at its Bridging Generosity, Leadership and Grantmaking luncheon on June 11.
The Foundation’s signature Community Grants program invests in organizations and programs that share a vision of a Greater Miami. These organizations represent the depth and breadth of innovation and services offered across our county, such as investing in Miami kids to become airline pilots; providing basic health care to those most in need; and supporting arts, culture and education.
“These grants are made possible by philanthropists who have entrusted their charitable dollars and legacies to The Miami Foundation,” said Javier Alberto Soto, president and CEO of The Miami Foundation. “They created their family’s foundation with us and will forever help those in our community who are most in need and meet Miami's emerging needs in ways the donor never envisioned.”
A panel that included community leaders reviewed more than 300 proposals that strive to build a Greater Miami. The recipients represent a broad spectrum of community organizations that work to improve the quality of life in Miami-Dade County.
