A LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER + EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
When we created the OUT Miami Foundation in late 2014, we had an ambitious dream to build an organization that would transform LGBT philanthropy in our community. We saw an opportunity to engage the next generation of philanthropists in unique and innovative ways that would bring about increased giving by first-time major donors to local LGBT nonprofit organizations. We asked for your trust and faith that we’d fulfill our promises to mobilize volunteers, engage philanthropists, and empower LGBT-serving organizations.
I’m proud to be able to write to you that within our first eighteen months as an organization we’ve been able to successfully launch all three of our signature programs--
- The Society @ OUT Miami: our engagement program for LGBT professionals launched in February and has grown to become the most active group of its kind in our local area. Click here to become a member!
- Team OUT Miami: our volunteer program launched in September and has already mobilized hundreds of volunteers to support a wide spectrum of nonprofit organizations. Click here to volunteer!
- OUT Miami’s Strategic Partnerships: our capacity-building program for LGBT-serving nonprofits launched this month with our first “Day of Service” and the distribution of three $8,000 grants to our 2016 Strategic Partners. Click here to nominate your favorite organization to be a future partner!
We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those that believed in us in our very first year as a start-up organization. A sincere and heartfelt “thank you” to our founding members of The Society @ OUT Miami, and to all of the volunteers, committee members, and board members that have made our success possible. It is only through the generosity of our members, the commitment of our volunteers, and the support from our corporate sponsors that we can continue to create positive, sustainable change.
If you’ve been searching for an opportunity to get more involved in your local LGBT community, or if you’re a seasoned community leader wanting to invest in the next generation of philanthropists—this is your chance to make a difference. As we focus on strengthening and expanding our three signature programs and as we begin to lay the foundation for OUT Miami’s long-term growth and development, we need your support now more than ever. Join the OUT Miami movement and be a part of our vision for a stronger community!
