Today we’re turning our attention over to the community of Fisher Island and taking a closer look at the Fisher Island Philanthropic Fund which focuses its efforts on children, working with those that are developmentally disabled as well as rehabilitating juvenile offenders. The organization is non-profit and is comprised of island residents and members focusing their efforts on providing funding for charities that serve children in need.
The Fisher Island Philanthropic Fund serves a number of agencies including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami established in 1940 which aims to inspire young people from disadvantaged communities, the Barnyard in Coconut Grove and its after school services, and Project Thrive which aims to serve as an early intervention program for infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities.
Other notable agencies served by the Fisher Island Philanthropic Fund are the United Way of Miami-Dade, the Kesher Day School which provides educational opportunities for children with developmental and learning disabilities, Jewish Community Services, and the Dade Marine Institute which has provided rehabilitative services to at-risk youth since 1969.
