Fundraise & Engage

The PartnerSHIP Program is MWK's major gift program that recognizes and engages key supporters throughout the year. Download the PartnerSHIP deck to learn more.

Give Miami Day is MWK's largest fundraising campaign. Over the course of four days (GMD and an early giving period), we participate in this Miami Foundation online event that invites everyone in the community to be a philanthropist. By being a Miami Waterkeeper Champion, you can host a personal fundraising page and engage your personal network in supporting clean water through MWK's work.

Host a Captains Party Fundraiser to introduce your network to Miami Waterkeeper and raise funds. Captains Parties can be breakfasts, lunches, cocktail receptions, etc. -- any way you believe your personal network would most like to engage in the work. Read more about goals and expectations for Captains here.

Our monthly giving program is currently under development. More information will be shared here soon.

Engage your company's employees in volunteerism in a day of service. Download this brochure to view ways to engage.
