Third Annual PhilanthroFest to Take Place April 12, Connecting Thousands of South Floridians to Over a Hundred Local Nonprofit Organizations and Community Agencies in a Family Friendly Festival
Free outdoor event promises day of family-friendly fun while raising nonprofit awareness, promoting civic engagement and connecting the community to nonprofit resources at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus
PhilanthroFest, the nation’s largest festival of its kind, is back and promises to be bigger and better than ever. Fulfilling the mission of its namesake organization, this year’s PhilanthroFest helps bridge the gap between local nonprofit organizations and members of the community – making it easier to get the help you need or give the help you can provide.
For Miami residents who are interested in donating time or money to help those in need, PhilanthroFest provides the opportunity to learn more about local nonprofits and meet the people behind them face to face. PhilanthroFest also serves as a nonprofit marketplace, raising awareness of the services and benefits that nonprofits and community agencies are able to provide.
Now in its third year, PhilanthroFest proves that community engagement can be fun. The outdoor festival is free and open to the public, and intended to be enjoyed by people of all ages. Festival attendees can enjoy a full day of art exhibits, musical performances, demonstrations, health screenings, a green market, food trucks, and an assortment of other activities that everyone in the family can appreciate, courtesy of PhilanthroFest’s community partners.
While taking part in the many activities, South Florida residents can learn about all kinds of nonprofit organizations representing all sorts of causes, including business and economic development; education; animal welfare; arts and cultural development; environmental issues; food, agriculture, and nutrition; civic engagement; health and disease prevention; youth activities, sports and recreation; and community improvement. For South Florida residents who have been looking for a chance to pay it forward, there is no opportunity like PhilanthroFest to find the nonprofit that’s right for you. Members of the community have the opportunity to sign up to volunteer or make a donation right on the spot.
And for those who may be in need of such services, nonprofits and community agencies are on hand to explain who they serve, what they do and how one can qualify for such services. It has never been easier to find out the wide array of services that South Florida community agencies and local nonprofits have to offer. PhilanthroFest is the largest nonprofit festival in the nation and the largest gathering of its kind.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
