The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation aims to develop South Florida as a world-class urban center. A thriving, equitable arts community is essential to making Greater Miami a vibrant, connected and culturally engaging place to live. The Pérez CreARTE Grant Program will invest over $1.5 million in Miami-Dade organizations working to cultivate this ecosystem by expanding residents’ access to the arts and making our city a global hub for artistic excellence.

The Foundation believes that effective arts education can inspire creative development in local youth, drive a lifelong interest in and appreciation for the arts, and build audiences for the future. The Foundation seeks to support top artistic talent and attract artists to Miami by creating local fellowship and residency programs.

Through our investments, we want to provide capital and support for exemplary organizations to embrace artistic risk-taking, expand the diversity of creative experiences and audiences, and present work that inspires with its excellence and relevance.

The Miami Foundation and Philanthropy Miami annually present the Emerging Philanthropist Award to a young donor who uses charitable giving to drive measurable results around a local cause, broadly improve the lives of Miamians and encourage others to give. Miami is a forward-thinking community and the next generation of philanthropists has already taken ownership of our region’s future success. The hope is that this award inspires other rising philanthropic leaders to see how any donor at any age can have a real impact on issues they care about.

We invite you to nominate someone today who you feel is deserving of this recognition.

  • Devoting time, treasure and talent significant to the individual’s capacity to give
  • Serving or have served in a voluntary leadership role at one or several Miami-Dade-based nonprofit(s) and/or civic organization(s)
