Our mission is to support local organizations’ projects and services and help our community grow. We provide an avenue for people to leave a lasting legacy.


Miami and Area Foundation was incorporated in 2009. We gave out our first grants in 2011 and have continued to give out grants every year since.

After being unable to hold our Annual Gala Dinner for the last two years we will once again be presenting our 11th Gala Dinner on November 12th 2022. At that time, we will present this year’s grants and award our Citizen of the Year.
