Biscayne Bay Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Southern Florida. Founded in March of 2014, this grassroots organization was developed with the goal of increased awareness for the health, safety, and sustainability of waterways on a global scale. Over the past year, our directors have expanded our mission to include outreach programs that serve disadvantaged members of the community. We accomplish our objectives by financially contributing to homeless individuals that participate in our cleanup activities, providing educational support to students diagnosed with developmental disabilities, and distributing resources to community based organizations.
Biscayne Bay Foundation, Inc.’s mission is to redevelop the community by beautifying the Biscayne Bay. With our love for the waterways we will work diligently towards the preservation of our natural resources, all the while making the environment safer for the marine life, mammals, fish, and sea life residing there.
In an effort to serve the disadvantaged members of our community, Biscayne Bay Foundation, Inc. has expanded its services to positively impact the homeless population and individuals that are diagnosed with developmental disabilities. Any individual that does not have secure housing accommodations will receive $10 in compensation for every bag of trash that they remove from the waterways. Our aspiration is that participants will gain the opportunity to afford food and other small basic needs while contributing to the rehabilitation of their local community.
Our organization has been fortunate to establish a tutoring program that is designed to assist individuals living with intellectual disabilities in their scholastic pursuits. Our support services create an environment for every participant to embrace the magic and true essence of learning. We aspire to provide the kind of educational services that make a difference and create memorable moments because we believe and are confident that every individual is reachable and teachable.
Our activities are overseen by a group of well-qualified individuals. Our diverse staff members have ties to the community, and thus possess the unique ability to relate to the target demographic. Additionally, our Board of Directors is comprised of a professional group of talented individuals who are dedicated to committing their time and resources to building a stronger community.
Biscayne Bay Foundation, Inc. strives to make our oceans a cleaner and healthier place. Through the efforts and services provided by our organization’s various projects we hope to make marine ecosystem conservation something that people feel is important while preserving them for future generations.
