Help us raise funds to ensure our most vulnerable neighbors can weather life’s storms

Catalyst Miami is raising money June 3rd – June 14th, 2019 to help our most vulnerable neighbors weather life’s storms–whether they face a hurricane or a health crisis.

As hurricane season begins in South Florida, we often think about the difficulties a storm can bring. Hurricane Irma revealed how truly vulnerable our community is to any storm or stressor.

In reality, nearly 60% of Miamians are one financial emergency away from poverty.

 

Catalyst Miami exists to ensure our most vulnerable neighbors can weather life’s storms–whether they face a health issue that threatens the ability to work and lands them in debt or caring for a chronically ill child without access to health care.

Our work helps low-wealth households in Miami become more financially resilient by building assets and savings.

 

Catalyst Miami helps prepare communities for life’s storms year-round.  We work to collectively find long-term, sustainable solutions to the issues that face low-wealth communities in Miami-Dade.

Our work includes:

  • empowering communities and individuals to advocate for themselves,
  • teaching financial literacy,
  • providing access to non-predatory lending and ways to rebuild credit,
  • and offering trainings like CLEAR Miami which educate and empower citizens regarding climate change’s effects on their communities and which better prepare them to advocate for solutions.

Make a donation today so more Miami-Dade County residents will be prepared to weather life’s storms.

If we raise $1000 by June 14th, Avra Jain, local developer and 2017 Imagine Miami honoree, will match with her own donation of $1000.

If we raise $2,000 by June 14th, attorneys Daniel T. Stabile and Michael D. Lozoff of Shutts & Bowen LLP will donate $1,000.

Also, those who make a recurring donation will be entered for a chance to win a family membership to Miami Children’s Museum. The winner will be announced on June 19th.
