In 2023, over 100 applications were received by the Earl B. and Loraine H Miller Foundation, and over $1,100,000 in grants were awarded to fifty of those applicants.  In order to be responsive to the needs and challenges posed by the continuing consequences of the pandemic, our foundation provided the opportunity for grantees to utilize funding for operations.

Types of Support

The Miller Foundation provides funding for the following types of requests for support:


  • Programs
  • Core Operating Support
  • Capacity Building




For the 2024/2025 grant cycle, applicants will continue to see a shorter, more simplified online form, with separate versions for proposals of $10,000 or less and for those above $10,000.


Our online application process will open on January 15, 2024. At that time, if you are a new applicant (i.e., have never completed an Application Form for an annual grant award), please go to to create an account and submit your Letter of Interest (LOI) by January 31. (If your LOI from a previous year was denied, you are considered a new applicant and should submit a new LOI so we may confirm your eligibility.) If you are a returning applicant and have submitted an Application Form in the past, regardless of whether you received funding or not, please access your grants management portal, log in and begin your new application. Returning applicants may use the special Access Code (arriving under separate email) to bypass the Letter of Interest step.


Be sure to select Apply and scroll to find the category appropriate for your organization’s request–“Requests $10,000 or Less,” or “Requests Over $10,000.” Incorrect applications will not be considered.


The last day to apply is March 1, 2024.



Please note: In order to best address the needs of our community’s children and provide effective support for our nonprofit partners, we have established a three-year award limit. Beginning with the 2022/23 grant cycle, organizations awarded funding for three consecutive years must refrain from applying for a period of one year. In other words, if your organization receives funding in 2022, 2023 and 2024, you must not apply again until 2026.

Length of Support

Due to limited available funding, the Foundation will only consider one-year requests for support.
