The Miami Foundation COVID-19 response:

The Community Recovery Fund

The Miami Foundation is mobilizing philanthropic, government and business partners to launch The Community Recovery Fund that will provide critical operating support to nonprofit organizations whose ability to serve our residents has been severely diminished by the impacts of the COVID-19 coronavirus.  The Miami Foundation has seeded the Fund with an initial $200,000 contribution.

Local nonprofit organizations have had to cancel revenue-generating events, absorb unexpected costs and shut their doors to clients, eliminating much-needed fees for their services. The Community Recovery Fund provides critical help to Miami-Dade nonprofits whose operations are severely impacted and supports their long-term recovery, resilience and financial stability. The Miami Foundation has seeded the Fund with a $200,000 contribution. To support Miami-Dade County’s vital network of nonprofit institutions and the residents they serve, click here to give now. Nonprofit staff members can read more and express interest for support by completing this form.
