Grants of up to $2,500 to Florida nonprofit community-based organizations to benefit the local community in eligible regions. Consideration will be given to programs that focus on areas including, but not limited to, strengthening community identity, diversity, youth development, education, and safety promotion in sports and recreation. Eligible activities benefit residents of Key Biscayne.

Types of Grants:

  • Discretionary Grants: Provided for programs that further the goals of the Key Biscayne Community Foundation.
  • The Ritz-Carlton Youth Safety Initiative: Initially established by the principals of The Run-Carlton, Key Biscayne. Funds programs that provide services to the youth of Key Biscayne, such as teaching and reinforcing safety in sports and recreation.
  • The Community Building Initiative: Established by the Key Biscayne Community Foundation. Funds programs that specifically focus on developing a sense of community for those who live and work on Key Biscayne. Programs may explore issues of diversity, focus on building community, and encourage residents to invest in the community by donating their time, talent, and treasure.

The Foundation is most likely to fund projects that:

  • Enhance the quality of life in the local, greater, and global community (for example, the arts, the environment, and educational programs for persons of all ages);
  • Build on the strengths and assets of people and organizations of the local, greater, and global community and engage in effective community development and problem solving;
  • Promote cooperation and collaboration among the organizations of the local, greater, and global community;
  • Promote the leadership and development of resources in identifying and meeting local needs; and
  • Respond creatively and in a timely manner to existing or emerging community interests and challenges.
