At the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners meeting held on April 4, 2016, the County Board approved the grant agreement proposed by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez. This funding, along with the financing of existing pledges due past opening, allows Frost Science to keep construction on the museum moving toward completion in 2016, providing an internationally recognized science museum in South Florida.
The Frost Science Board of Trustees, leadership and staff are extremely grateful for the support of Mayor Gimenez, Board Chairman Jean Monestime and the Board of County Commissioners, and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and Cultural Affairs Council. In addition to the grant, Frost Science will also continue fundraising efforts, with the aim of completing the capital campaign goal and supporting the endowment fund. We are committed to continuing and expanding our community initiatives, and offering rich opportunities in science, technology and innovation learning, all of which are crucial to our community’s future prosperity.
