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.


Last fall, we launched several pilot programs as part of our Foundation’s efforts to offer fast and flexible support for the communities we serve during the dual crises of the pandemic and wildfire impacts. The applications for these programs will be closed after June 30, 2021.


From July through September 2021, we are processing previously submitted applications and evaluating our pilot programs. We will open our next grant cycle October 1. Letters of inquiry for both arts and education requests will be accepted October 1-25, 2021. After October 1st, Fast Track Arts Grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed monthly.


While you are welcome to browse our website in the meantime, please know that some details of our funding criteria may change as a result of our evaluation process this summer.



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.
