Association of Fundraising Professionals of Miami honors Carnival Foundation
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Miami Chapter recognized Carnival Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Carnival Corporation, with the 2018 Outstanding Grant Maker Award during its 33rd Annual National Philanthropy Day Luncheon on November 2, 2018. The award honors Carnival’s philanthropic work and its dedicated support of nonprofit organizations improving South Florida through grant making.
“We are so grateful for this recognition,” said Linda Coll, executive director of Carnival Foundation. “What makes everything we do at Carnival Foundation so worthwhile is seeing the positive impact of our grant recipients. Because the way we see it, Carnival Foundation is not giving away hundreds or thousands of dollars. We are empowering and improving our communities through our partners.”
For more than 25 years, Carnival Foundation has endeavored to make South Florida and other communities better places to live and work by supporting hundreds of nonprofit organizations.
