The Children’s Trust want’s to make sure community members with great ideas get an opportunity to get funding to bring those ideas to life. So many times people from under-served communities lack the resources to get their program ides going, so the Children’s Trust wants to change that. They are doing this work through their Children’s Trust Innovation Fund, and for the first time they are hosting an info-session so people can ask all the questions they need to so they’re prepared to apply.

The info session takes place Thursday February 13th 5:30 p.m. to 7p.m. at Venture Cafe Miami, 1951 Northwest 7th Avenue.

They’re looking for community partners who will implement innovative short-term projects with the potential to extend up to 18 months. All proposed projects should demonstrate how they will benefit families with children within Miami-Dade County.

The Children’s Trust Innovation Fund gives community partners an avenue to test new ideas that could lead to effective and equitable opportunities for vulnerable populations of children to thrive. By offering community partners the opportunity to identify an issue, develop a potential solution and implement a strategy, The Children’s Trust hopes to build on existing community assets, encourage collaboration and support the sustainability of successful projects.
