What is Give Miami Day?
Give Miami Day is one of the biggest annual giving events in the US. In 2017, it made history by raising $10.1 million for nearly 700 local nonprofits! On Give Miami Day, anyone can make a philanthropic impact by supporting local nonprofit organizations.
Throughout the day, individuals may view online profiles of hundreds of nonprofit organizations serving Miami-Dade County and make a charitable gift directly on givemiamiday.org. The Miami Foundation and its partners will maximize the community’s generosity by making a bonus gift for every donation between $25 and $10,000 received on November 15th through givemiamiday.org.
