Engaging and improving our community, Merrick Society donors are a vital part of the Foundation’s mission. The three-year donation made by Merrick Society donors enables the Foundation to award college scholarships to economically disadvantaged students from Coral Gables Senior High School and administer grants supporting charitable organizations among other worthwhile programs the Foundation supports.
