Together, our community foundations have launched a relief fund to help those impacted by the devastating building collapse in Surfside, Florida.
On June 24th, 2021 at approximately 1:30 in the morning, a twelve-story residential building with 136 units partially collapsed.
The Coral Gables Community Foundation, The Key Biscayne Community Foundation, and The Miami Foundation have stood together since then to build a relief fund and distribute funds to those impacted. In December 2021, all of the remaining funds were disbursed to victims and families. Read more about this latest disbursement here.
