About Us

The Miami Open for Business program, fueled by a $20 million grant from Wells Fargo, is operated by two organizations in South Florida.

The Miami Foundation

The Miami Foundation, established in 1967, is a local community foundation devoted to building our philanthropic, civic, and leadership backbone. The mission of the foundation is to create a stronger, more equitable, more resilient Greater Miami.

For the Open for Business program, TMF administers grants to nonprofits and CREO funding (Collective Real Estate Ownership).
