Last year, the Miami Dade College Foundation distributed $13,865,109 to benefit the students and programs of Miami Dade College. This was only possible because of the generosity of our donors. If you have made a gift in the past, we thank you.
The Foundation takes our role as steward of your contributions very seriously. Our Investment Committee comprises investment professionals to ensure that the underlying assets of the Foundation are managed wisely. And, each year, Kaufman Rossin audits our funds.
Whether your passion is for student scholarships, arts and culture, entrepreneurship, workforce training, health care or anything else that would elevate our Miami community, we invite you to contribute to MDC Foundation. Miami Dade College has a long history of responding to the needs of our business community with certificate and degree programs designed to create the workforce of tomorrow. Beyond our educational offerings, the College provides the Miami community access to world-class cultural programming.
While we are proud of our progress, there is more work to do. More than 79 percent of full-time, first-time students at the College require financial assistance to pursue their studies, and state funding has been declining over the last ten years.
Given this environment, private contributions are essential to the College. Your support can make access to quality educational opportunities at Miami Dade College available to all, forever influencing the career trajectory of our students and improving the economic outlook for their families. Together, we will change lives in Miami and beyond, via the opportunity of education.
Our Mission: Miami Dade College Foundation raises essential private funds to enable Miami Dade College to change lives, families, communities and the world through the opportunity of education.
