Dade Community Foundation



Dade Community Foundation was created in 1967 as Greater Miami's permanent philanthropic endowment. A nonprofit tax-exempt organization, the Foundation manages funds to support the emerging charitable needs of Miami-Dade County.


For 40 years, the Foundation has served individuals, families, corporations, private foundations, and charitable organizations by providing information on the benefits and options of philanthropy. We offer insight into community priorities, and supply a stable, tax-advantaged financial structure to maximize donations and to assure their viability in perpetuity.
