Awarding grants is the final step in a unique grant selection process at the Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade. But what makes this program different? In addition to focusing on innovative initiatives for gender-specific work based on empowering women, building equality and fostering social change, the donors are invited to participate in choosing the programs that receive funding. In fact, collaboration among grantee partners is encouraged through roundtable meetings. Recent recipients include PACE Center For Girls Miami, Camillus House, Soroptomist International Coral Gables, The Miami Workers Center, LEAP and the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative. Founded in 1993, The Women’s Fund is Miami-Dade’s only organization directing its entire advocacy and funding energy toward creating equal opportunity, access and influence for women and girls; 305.441.0506; WomensFundMiami.org.
