No two people or families in need are quite the same. This year’s Power Leaders in Corporate Philanthropy reflect the dynamic needs – and committed leaders – across the South Florida market.
Our list of leaders reflects the individuals and organizations whose resources focus on helping our most vulnerable. By lending a hand to lift others up, most are serving needs critical to any thriving community.
Because along with spending on education, infrastructure, culture and other amenities people find important, thriving communities must invest in their at-risk populations in hopes of becoming a world-class destination.
These Power Leaders in Corporate Philanthropy have made that hand up their life’s calling. And we’re all better because of it.
