November 19 is The Movement’s biggest fundraising day and the only day your donation of $25 up to $10,000 will be partially matched by local funders and sponsors. Last year, we raised close to $250,000 through donations from over 727 supporters and friends of the Movement. Donating on November 19 maximizes your impact like no other day this year!
Give Miami Day is Miami-Dade County’s largest philanthropic event of the year. Last year, more than $14 million was raised for 833 local nonprofits. Supporters and friends of The Movement may donate online from 12:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, November 19.
For the first time ever, The Movement will host an online telethon to celebrate Give Miami Day! We hope you will register and join us for a live musical performance from a special Movement supporter, door prizes, and more fun!
What We’ve Accomplished in 2020
Developed – collaborating with the Florida Chamber of Commerce – business champions for “school readiness” throughout our state.
Redesigned our highly successful ReadingPals mentoring-tutoring program so as not to lose learning-to-read momentum during the coronavirus.
What does The Children’s Movement of Florida do?
We advocate for and raise awareness about the importance of early childhood in Florida.
What We Believe:
The Children’s Movement of Florida believes that the well-being and education of our children in Florida must be the highest priority of government, business, non-profit institutions and families. The economic future of our state and the stability of the communities we live in depend on achieving this goal. The major objective of the citizen-led, non-partisan Children’s Movement of Florida is to inform the political, business and civic leaders, and the parents and people of this state, about this issue – and encourage them to make the well-being and education of our children our highest priority, including in the way we invest our public resources.
How We Make Change:
Our advocacy and awareness work focuses on three pillars of early childhood. We achieve impact at the local level by educating and empowering Floridians on the importance of the early years, and at the state level by encouraging elected officials to think of children when they vote for systems-level change.
