ARTS FUNDING OVERVIEW
The Miller Foundation celebrates and supports arts organizations throughout the state of Oregon. We value the spectrum from emerging arts organizations to long-standing artistic institutions and believe that a healthy arts ecology includes a vibrant mix of creative expression from multiple disciplines and cultures.

Strengthening financial capacity
The foundation accepts quarterly arts proposals from organizations delivering artistic programming, performances or exhibits as their primary mission, through three grant programs:
In July 2015, the Miller Foundation changed its arts funding guidelines to provide a limited number of multi-year operating support awards to grantees throughout Oregon by invitation only. The Operating Support Initiative is a four-year program that the Foundation will review for renewal in 2019.
We do not accept proposals for capital purchases or construction of facilities.
