Fundraising Events are Vital to Our Success

At the heart of Miami’s cultural and natural heritage lies Deering Estate, a place of historical significance and ecological diversity. Our foundation plays a pivotal role in preserving this treasure, and their fundraising and sponsorship events are vital for sustaining the estate’s mission. By contributing, individuals, organizations, and corporations become stewards of education, research, exhibits, collections, natural conservation, and historical preservation in their local area. Donors are not merely contributors; they are partners in this endeavor, and enable Deering Estate to ensure that it stands as a beacon for future generations seeking diverse cultural and educational experiences. If you would like information on how to become more involved with the foundation, feel free to contact us today.
