Foundation will bolster charitable donations during 24-hour, online event
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. On December 12, 2012, 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 GiveMiamiDay.org, allowing existing and potential donors to see the mission, work and impact of each organization. Nonprofits hope to connect with donors looking to support the work they do in the community.
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 website on that day will have a percentage of it matched by The Miami Foundation.
“Give Miami Day will help us stimulate and grow philanthropy throughout the community,” said Matthew Beatty, communication officer at The Miami Foundation. “Through the Give Miami site, donors can find and give to organizations doing the work they believe is best for Miami-Dade. It’s an easy way to support the causes most important to them.”
Nonprofits may go to miamifoundation.org/givemiamiNP to set up their profile now. Organizations can also review event details and Give Miami Day rules at miamifoundation.org/givemiamiFAQ.

To participate in Give Miami Day, nonprofit organizations must meet eligibility requirements and create a free profile on GiveMiamiDay.org before 5 p.m., Monday, November 26.
