MIAMade receives $10,000 grant to fund a makerspace for Liberty City!

MIAMade, based at The LAB Miami, an innovation campus in the heart of Wynwood, has received a $10,000 accelerator grant from The Miami Foundation to fund the development of Liberty To Make, a makerspace for the people of Liberty City.

                   

MIAMade is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the growth of the Maker movement in the Greater Miami area. MIAMade has established a diverse network of talent, capital and thought leaders to catapult the maker movement into a force for creative entrepreneurship and innovation in the community.

                   

The Miami Foundation Accelerator Grant will be used to kickstart the creation of a makerspace in Liberty City that will engage locals of all ages by fostering their entrepreneurial and creative talents while bringing the community together through STEAM (science, math, engineering, arts, and math) principles.

                   

“Thanks to The Miami Foundation, MIAMade is excited to take its first step in bringing the people of Liberty City, a space to come together and build together, in turn gaining economic and educational opportunities in a changing Miami.” said MIAMade Programs Manager, and Co-Founder of the Wynwood Maker Camp, Willie Avendano.

                   

The Miami Foundation works with all kinds of donors and help them make their philanthropy more effective and more fun. The Accelerator Grants program makes $10,000 award related to each of the eight Our Miami Report issue areas. The Foundation particularly looks at entities that already have traction, are making positive headway and could turn modest funding into expanded impact. The Miami Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity.

                   

MIAMade is accepting donations to fund future programming at The LAB Miami and Liberty To Make. For more information on MIAMade or how you can support its community efforts, please visit www.miamade.org or call Jennifer Mendez Alba at (786) 337-1119.
