Miami Foundation Give Miami Day 12/12/12

Miami Foundation Give Miami Day

givemiamiOn December 12, 2012, The Miami Foundation will launch the inaugural Give Miami Day, a unique, online giving event that allows individuals in the community an opportunity to build a greater Miami through philanthropy. The 24-hour, online donation event will ignite Miami to support hundreds of nonprofits making a difference in Miami-Dade County.  Nonprofits can create their profile for viewing on, allowing existing and potential donors to see the mission, work and impact of each organization.  Nonprofits can connect with donors looking to support the work they do in the community.

“This is a distinctive way to introduce people to the important role of nonprofit organizations and help them learn more about how their donation can impact lives in greater Miami,” shared Javier Alberto Soto, president and CEO of The Miami Foundation.

Donors will make charitable gifts to local nonprofits beginning at 12 midnight on December 12, 2012 and ending at 12 midnight on December 13, 2012.  Every donation between $25 and $10,000 received through the Give Miami Day website on that day will have a percentage of it matched by The Miami Foundation.
