Thanks for visiting The Miami Foundation's submission portal.  From here you can submit applications and reports for select Foundation grant programs.

The Miami Foundation and Philanthropy Miami annually present the Emerging Philanthropist Award to a young donor who uses charitable giving to drive measureable 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. 


Nominees must be between the ages of 18 and 40 and live in Miami-Dade County. They may work or serve in any field or sector, though their employment at a nonprofit organization may not be the sole reason for their nomination. The person should be someone who has demonstrated a clear philanthropic commitment to one or more Miami-Dade-focused causes and/or organizations by:

  • Devoting time, treasure and talent significant to the individual’s capacity to give
  • Serving or have served in a voluntary leadership role at a Miami-Dade-based nonprofit and/or civic organization(s)
  • Using their voice, networks and influence to inspire others to become philanthropically involved in our community
