Amerant Bank, one of the largest community banks headquartered in Florida, recently announced that it has partnered with the United Way Miami. The partnership agreement will be valid through 2024.
Among several initiatives, the most significant is the bank’s undertaking of the United Way’s annual 5K in Coral Gables, where the bank is headquartered.
The Amerant 5K benefiting United Way Miami, scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022, supports nearly 100 quality programs and initiatives that focus on creating equitable access to quality education for all residents of Miami-Dade County along with the opportunity to lead healthy and financially secure lives. The race takes walkers, runners and strollers through the City Beautiful, including downtown Coral Gables and City Hall.
Amerant also will sponsor the United Way’s Women United Let’s Do Lunch Series, a professional development and networking series of events with the purpose of connecting influential women in Miami committed to making a positive impact.
“We are proud to support such an important and long-lasting organization in our local community,” said Jerry Plush, vice chair and CEO of Amerant. “The United Way plays an integral part in enhancing the lives of those in need within the South Florida community, and with this partnership, we hope to continue their mission.”
United Way Miami aims to create a thriving and equitable community for all Miami-Dade County families and children through community engagement, investments in programs and initiatives, community activities and much more. Through this partnership, Amerant aims to create a positive impact and foster growth in the local community it serves.
“We are thrilled to welcome Amerant Bank to our United Way family,” said Maria C. Alonso, president and CEO of United Way Miami. “Their support fuels our work, creating opportunities for all families to thrive. We look forward to working together to build a better and stronger Miami.”
