Grantees: Please be in touch with your questions & concerns, as we can offer flexibility as needed. Read our latest updates here.
In the Arts, we are participating in a collaborative funding effort with one application reaching most of the arts funders statewide: the Oregon Arts and Culture Recovery Program. The application cycle closed June 15, 2020.
In Education, if you are a current or recurring grantee, Miller Foundation staff will reach out to discuss how we can support you right now.
In order to maximize our support for affected Arts and Education nonprofits in Oregon, the Miller Foundation will focus the remainder of our 2020 responsive funding (normally awarded after our June and September deadlines) on supporting our current grantees. We expect to open our application process again in December 2020 for consideration at our March 2021 board meeting.
Resources: Tools for nonprofits related to fundraising, online events, remote work, and more here. We recommend NAO's Planning During Change Toolkit, including scenario planning tools and a helpful cashflow projection template.
