The Miami Dolphins Foundation announced a new initiative within its education impact area, embracing a long-held South Floridian’s legacy by housing the Nat Moore Scholarship Fund.
According to the Miami Dolphins Foundation, The Nat Moore Scholarship Fund’s mission is to provide the youth of Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties with the financial resources needed to pursue avenues of education and training for employment readiness.
They say the fund is designed to bolster efforts to bridge a gap between receiving financial assistance and obtaining a degree or vocational diploma. The fund is committed to raising $10 million in 10 years to fund educational opportunities for South Florida youth.
