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.


In response to the ongoing pandemic and the added impacts of wildfires statewide, the Miller Foundation has created two temporary, simplified grant application processes to support the arts and education sectors. These ​new processes temporarily supplant our previous grant programs.


We understand that much is uncertain right now and we do not expect applicants to have all the answers about what the future holds. We intend for these new streamlined processes to offer flexible funding and to preserve valuable staff time at organizations facing extraordinary challenges. Both processes have rolling application dates through June 30, 2021 and we will be providing a rapid turnaround from inquiry to application to decision to grant payment.

A primary goal of our simplified grant applications is to reduce the burden on nonprofit staff and volunteers: for this reason, we recommend you review our FAQ's and the list of what we do not fund to confirm your eligibility before applying. 


Arts organizations may apply for a Fast Track grant or submit a Letter of Inquiry.


Education organizations

are invited to submit our

Letter of Inquiry form.


Artists can apply for relief grants through our partnership with the Oregon Arts Commission and the Oregon Community Foundation.


We are offering current grantees flexibility on grant restrictions and extending timelines for grant activities and reporting. Please get in touch to discuss how we can best support you.
