When the North Dade Medical Foundation dissolved in 2007, it bequeathed its capital to a variety of organizations. Having received grant funding from the Foundation in the past, The Advocacy Network on Disabilities was identified as an excellent small organization that it wished to continue supporting. By awarding it a generous endowment, interest on the principal continues to provide The Advocacy Network on Disabilities with revenue to assist individuals living in the northern part of Miami-Dade County. Investment managed by the Miami Foundation.
