LONG-TERM RECOVERY: The Community Recovery Fund – Local nonprofit organizations have had to cancel revenue-generating events, absorb unexpected costs and shut their doors to clients, eliminating much-needed fees for their services. The Community Recovery Fund provides critical help to Miami-Dade nonprofits whose operations are severely impacted and supports their long-term recovery, resilience and financial stability. The Miami Foundation has seeded the Fund with a $200,000 contribution. To support Miami-Dade County’s vital network of nonprofit institutions and the residents they serve, click here to give now.
