What is Give Miami Day?
Give Miami Day is one of the biggest annual giving events in the United States. This year, we will ignite Greater Miami for 24 hours, beginning at 12:00 a.m. on November 21st and ending at 12:00 a.m. on November 21, 2018.
On Give Miami Day, anyone can make a philanthropic impact by collectively supporting our area nonprofit organizations. We made history on Give Miami Day 2017, raising $10.1 million for nearly 700 local nonprofits from more than 20,000 donors spanning the city, nation, and globe.
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 our 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.
The Miami Foundation hosts Give Miami Day as part of our mission to promote philanthropy throughout Miami-Dade County. Since 1967, we've taken leadership on civic issues, invested in our communities and nurtured local philanthropy.

Why should you Give?
Our very own Franklin McCune was quoted in the New Tropic on why he chose to give to City Year Miami on Give Miami Day 2016 and the impact that his donation will make!
City Year Miami
“I give to City Year because every student deserves the same opportunities to be successful in school. The same attention care and support all students have the right to. City Year works to stop the dropout crisis and keep our students on track to graduate via attendance, behavior, and course performance initiatives in math and English. I am a very proud product of the MDCPS public school system and I feel deeply connected to this community. I have had the privilege to have been working for City Year for 2 years and a champion since their inception. A gift to them is a gift that will help affect the lives of nearly 7,000 students daily in MDCPS at 17 schools. Help us put more red jackets in schools and help us continue to #MakeBetterHappen”
