Millares believes in giving back. We believe it is both a privilege and a responsibility for an organization to be charitable, and we practice what we preach. Maria Millares is proud to have served on the Board of Directors of Feeding South Florida for 20 years, including two terms as its President. Feeding South Florida rescues and distributes more than 40 million pounds of food per year through direct-service programs and a network of nonprofit partner agencies, including soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, and group homes. This organization also leads hunger and poverty advocacy efforts and provides innovative programming and education. The Millares family has independently raised over $1,000,000 for the organization. As a firm, Millares also encourages its team members to contribute to this cause through their payroll withholding program and generously matches their contributions dollar for dollar. We are very proud to say that we have 100% participation among the team at Millares.

Millares continues to be a long-time supporter of the Lotus House Women’s Shelter which serves the women and children of Miami’s Overtown neighborhood. Maria Millares serves on its Board of Directors while Ruben Millares is proud to be one of the organization’s Young Leaders. Lotus House is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of homeless women, youth and children. They provide sanctuary, support, education, tools and resources that empower and heal so they can learn, grow and blossom and achieve their true potential. Through annual donations and participation in their annual fund raisers, Millares has made an impact on the lives of many abused women and children within our community. Ruben Millares, also an accomplished visual artist, donates his work and is a featured performance artist at each of the shelter’s annual art focused fund raisers. Along with his partner, acclaimed conceptual and visual artist Antonia Wright (also a Board member), they generously host and teach contemporary art study programs for shelter residents.

Ruben Millares is also a proud member of the University of Miami Citizens Board.  Established in 1946, the University of Miami Citizens Board is a select group of more than 250 business, professional, and civic leaders who actively support the University's philanthropic efforts and promote UM programs. Since its inception, the Citizens Board has raised an estimated $454 million for the University and advanced 97 CB members to the University’s Board of Trustees.  Members expand their knowledge of the University through firsthand contact with students, faculty, administrators, and facilities on all of the University's campuses. Members are encouraged to share information and insight gained through these encounters with the South Florida community.

As a visual artist and musician, Ruben Millares is an active member of the Miami arts community and sits on the board of Dimensions Variable (DV).  DV is a nonprofit led by artists committed to the education, presentation, and support of contemporary art in Miami. Through a supportive community, DV provides studios, curates exhibitions, produces external projects, manages art acquisitions, publishes content, hosts discussions, develops education, organizes events that engage the community, and supports challenging and experimental art practices.  DV believes that the support of contemporary art must be through multiple sources to avoid the pressures of a market on the long and challenging process of experimental art practices. DV functions as a hybrid providing multiple levels of support as a nonprofit, while at the same time working with art markets to place works in notable collections.
