Through these extraordinary times

Miller's mission remains steadfast.

We are committed to supporting a thriving arts ecology and to strengthening teacher effectiveness and students’ academic success.


For the second year, we are partnering with the Oregon Community Foundation and Oregon Arts Commission to support Oregon artists through the Artist Resilience Program. Last year the program distributed $1.25M to 646 artists throughout our state.


The guidelines for the 2022 program are available now, and the application period opens January 13. The application deadline is February 10, 2022.  


As we adapt to an ever-changing environment and the ongoing challenges of the pandemic and wildfire recovery, we will continue to prioritize simplicity, speed and flexibility in our 2022 grantmaking to nonprofit organizations working in the arts and K-12 education statewide.
