The Celebration of Philanthropy is an annual event traditionally held the last weekend of February to celebrate OUT Miami Foundation's anniversary, highlight the fantastic work of our grantees, thank our members who give monthly or annual to the foundation, and honor superstar volunteers in our community.
The funds raised at this event support OUT Miami Foundation's community-building programming, our grantmaking efforts, and the thousands of LGBT people in our community impacted by the foundation and our community partners to help build a strong, engaged LGBT community in Miami.
OUT Miami Foundation's Strategic Partnership grants are awarded at this event to local LGBT-serving organizations. At the event, the grantees have an opportunity to share their work and the impact of the grant on their agency's programs and services to all in attendance.
To date, over $62,000 have been awarded to benefit the local LGBT community
