Philanthropy Shaping A New Miami

Many people, organizations and businesses in Miami are actively committed to philanthropy. As Javier Alberto Soto, president and CEO of the Miami Foundation, puts it, “Miami is home to a young, diverse demographic that’s looking for ways to get involved, ways to improve our community that aren’t traditional, like a formal gala.”

On Nov. 20, the Miami Foundation will continue its new initiative: Give Miami Day, where more than 400 Miami-Dade nonprofits are participating this year. On that day, participating donors can directly give money to a particular group or groups, or they can deposit to a general fund that will be distributed among all participating charities.
