MIAMI—Inspire305, a new initiative powered by United Way of Miami-Dade, set out on a mission to inspire change by calling on our community’s innovative nonprofits to participate in a contest celebrating change makers and emerging philanthropic leaders in Miami. The response was incredible.
Local nonprofits from across Miami applied and seven finalists were selected by a group of 10 United Way of Miami-Dade LINC & Young Leaders Executive Committee members. Then we enlisted the community’s help in choosing which nonprofit would make the greatest impact. Thousands voted and Code/Art was selected as this year’s Grand Innovator.
Winners were celebrated at CANVAS Miami where all seven finalists had a chance to present their organizations to a live and streaming crowd.
Thank you to this year’s partners, WeWork, A+E District and CANVAS Miami and to all who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this event unforgettable. In addition, a big thank you to an anonymous donor who contributed an extra $5,000 to each of our seven finalist!
