Standard Grants from the Miller Foundation

With the sunsetting of our Operating Support Initiative and the expansion of our Standard Process grants, our Inquiry Form (LOI) is open three times each year for Arts and Education applicants.

  • Education: Our Standard Process is for Education applicants with annual expenses over $25,000.
  • Arts: Our Standard Process is for Arts applicants with annual expenses over $500,000.

Miller Foundation's Standard Process grants provide multi-year operating support (up to 3 years depending on history of past Miller support) with quick and flexible reporting requirements annually. Learn more here.
