About Us

 

Welcome to Miami Bayside Foundation

Miami Bayside Foundation (MBF) is a nonprofit organization designed to advance economic development in Miami through the support of minority businesses and education.

MBF seeks to do this through the creation and administration of loan programs for minority businesses, through the creation of programs and educational scholarships for minorities, and by providing technical assistance to minority-owned businesses.

In the early 1980’s, prior to the ground-breaking for the Bayside Marketplace, the City of Miami and famed Bayside Marketplace developer Jim Rouse began discussing ideas for an organization that would support minority entrepreneurs in the City of Miami.

In 1986, MBF was created from this partnership as a means to revitalize and serve the City of Miami’s downtown economic core. MBF currently advances economic development throughout the City of Miami through the support of minority businesses and education.

MBF has awarded more than 747 scholarships to City of Miami minority students attending Miami Dade College, Florida International University, Florida Memorial University, Miami Dade Public High Schools and D.A. Dorsey, George T. Baker Aviation, and Lindsey Hopkins Technical Colleges. It also awarded 80 loans totaling more than $3.5 million to City of Miami minority-owned businesses creating more than 350 jobs and created partnerships that have helped train more than 250 City of Miami minority business owners.
