Over 400 charities involved in Give Miami Day
Last year, Give Miami Day made South Florida history as the most active day of philanthropic giving ever. On December 12, 2012, almost 5,000 donors gave more than $1.2 million to 300 organizations working to improve our community. The unique, online giving event provides everyone an opportunity to build a better Miami through philanthropy.
During the 24-hour period between midnight November 20 and midnight November 21, individuals may view online profiles of more than 400 nonprofit organizations serving Miami-Dade County, and make a charitable gift at givemiamiday.org. Donors are able to search organizations based on their work and impact, allowing them to give in support of their interests.
“The inaugural Give Miami Day was a demonstration of Miami’s charitable spirit,” said Javier Alberto Soto, president and CEO of The Miami Foundation. “The event puts the power of philanthropy in anyone’s hands. Everyone with a passion for Miami can invest in our bright future.”
With the support of Knight Foundation, Marlins Foundation and The Miami Foundation Board of Trustees, every donation between $25 and $10,000 made through the Give Miami Day website on that day will have a percentage of it matched by The Miami Foundation. Donors can also support all participating nonprofits on the site by giving directly to the match pool.
“Any donor can search and give to organizations doing the work they believe is best for Miami-Dade, which makes it easy to support the causes most important to them,” continued Soto. “Together with a thriving and engaged community, we will reignite the new, philanthropic Miami to make Give Miami Day 2013 another milestone for our city.”
