The Miller Foundation believes that every child should have access to a well-rounded education that includes the arts. Arts education requests should therefore be submitted through our education letter of inquiry process.
You have a greater chance of receiving Miller funding for your arts education programming if your organization meets any of these criteria:
You provide non-school based sequential arts education specifically engaging youth who face economic, geographic, or other barriers to participation.
You work in partnership with public schools to provide arts education where such programming would otherwise be unavailable.
You connect young people with professional teaching artists.
You provide culturally specific arts education.
We do not fund individual school/school district offerings for arts education programming. It may be helpful to review what we typically do not fund.
