Bayview Foundation is committed to improving the education and lives of young people in Florida through programs designed to create and expand avenues for mentorship, academic support, and enrichment activities.
Bayview Foundation Programs
“I Have a Dream” Program
Bayview Foundation’s first program started in 1999 when we engaged with the “I Have a Dream” Program. The program began supporting a 1st grade class at Charles R. Drew Elementary School. Over the next 2 years, the school improved from a “D” rating to an “A”.
KIPP Knowledge Is Power Program
Bayview Foundation partners with nationally renowned KIPP Schools (Knowledge Is Power Program Schools).
Miami’s first KIPP School, Miami Sunrise Academy, opened in Liberty City in 2018. Bayview Foundation provides support to the inaugural K-1 grade students and sponsors the College Prep and Mentoring Program to provide after-school programming at the Academy.
Bayview Foundation coordinates a volunteer team of employees from the Bayview family of companies to engage in community outreach. Bayview volunteers are teachers-for-a-day during Junior Achievement Days.
Other Bayview Foundation Initiatives
In addition to our core programs, Bayview Foundation supports several initiatives and efforts designed to enrich the lives of children.
To encourage our Dreamers to attend college after graduation, employees from the Bayview family of companies and other volunteers with Bayview Foundation take the Dreamers on college tours around Florida. Our Dreamers are able to visit different colleges where they attend guided tours to learn more about the school and academics offered. The campus tours give them a firsthand look at colleges they may not have seen otherwise.
Bayview in the Community
Bayview Asset Management and its family of companies set aside time every year to focus on giving back to the community and schools. Each community event hosted by Bayview provides volunteers with the opportunity to help enhance the educational environment for students in our community. Bayview Foundation has given back by painting a school’s courtyard, teaching children important financial literacy lessons and mentoring young scholars.
Bayview Foundation provides academic guidance and resources that will help our Dreamers receive the highest possible score on their SAT. Leading up to their exam day, we hold weekly SAT prep classes to ensure they are equipped for their college admission test. We review real SAT questions and practice writing exercises to help best prepare the students.
