The Marine Industry Cares Foundation
The Marine Industry Cares Foundation mobilizes the generous spirit of the maritime community to benefit children and families in need. Founded in 2010 by marine industry leaders in South Florida motivated to make a difference in their city, the foundation is a non-profit organization that brings the maritime and local communities together to raise money and awareness for local charities supporting children and families.
MICF organizes the Annual Spin-A-Thon, Toy Drives, Food Drives, a Kids Summer Camp Scholarship program, volunteers in the community and partners with marine trade groups like the Marine Industries Association of South Florida to plan community events such as the Annual Waterway Cleanup. As the major fundraising event for the organization, the Spin-A-Thon supports MICF, its various initiatives and allows the Foundation to assist local organizations like Kids In Distress and Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center with funding donations each year.
