Inspire305, powered by United Way of Miami-Dade, returns to support local up-and-coming, innovative nonprofits who are doing amazing work in Miami.
Community focused and driven, Inspire305 will award two grants — a $25,000 Grand Innovator Award and a $10,000 Trailblazer Award — to two deserving nonprofits. The community will be invited to join the movement through panel discussions, volunteerism and voting for their favorite nonprofits digitally and in-person.
Now until 11:59 p.m. on Mar. 29 agencies can apply. Nonprofits that received their 501(c)(3) certifications between 2011 and 2018, offer services locally and meet all other eligibility requirements are invited to learn more at www.inspire305.org.
A team of community volunteers will review all the applications and announce finalists in early May, when voting will open online. At the final event in mid-May, the finalists will present their pitches to attendees who will have one final chance to cast their votes — and then the winners will be crowned.
In 2018, Code/Art won the first place Grand Innovator Award and Mind&Melody won the second place Trailblazer Award. Today, Code/Art is using the Inspire305 grant to expand the number of afterschool CodeHER clubs, while Mind&Melody is expanding the delivery of intergenerational musical experiences to individuals with Alzheimer’s.
Inspire305 aims to propel social change by engaging the community in supporting new, innovative projects that are demonstrating vision and purpose.
