What is Philanthrofest?
A volunteer-based organization that connects people, passion and philanthropy in South Florida. PhilanthroFest is also an annual, large-scale festival showcasing and celebrating South Florida philanthropic organizations, community resources and cultural arts. Free and open to the public, we connect potential volunteers and donors to not-for-profit organizations and create an environment that promotes civic engagement and deepens community connections.
Now in its second year, PhilanthroFest 2013 will take place on Saturday, April 6th and be located at Miami Dade College‘s Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami. It provides an incredible opportunity to connect thousands of South Florida residents to valuable resources and services in the areas of Business & Economic Development, City/County Services, Civic Engagement/Community Improvement & Capacity Building, Cultural/Arts/Humanities, Educational, Environmental, Health/Human Services/Disease Prevention, Poverty/Welfare, Animal Related, Food/Agriculture/Nutrition, Recreation & Sports, and Youth Development & Services.
PhilanthroFest features art, music and dance entertainment, a kid’s zone, a community stage, and other family friendly attractions. The primary goal is to bring potential volunteers and donors together with not-for-profit organizations, while creating an environment that promotes civic engagement, deepens community connections and sparks the philanthropic spirit of South Florida.
PhilanthroFest also strives to provide educational resources to non-profits in the areas of social media and on-line engagement, digital marketing and web development via collaborations between public/private partners and industry experts to create events such as our Non-Profit Community Engagement Institutes.
