Inspire305 powered by United Way of Miami-Dade is a community-wide led effort. Local Miami-Dade nonprofits who meet the eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply for one of two grant prizes. Upon completion of the application phase, Inspire305 and United Way volunteers vet and determine nonprofit finalists who are then put to an online vote. Upon public announcement of Inspire305 finalists, the Miami-Dade community is encouraged to learn more about each nonprofit finalist through their respective pitch videos and asked to vote for their favorite. The two nonprofits with the most and second most votes are awarded the Grand Innovator and Trailblazer award respectively.
