In 2022, over 80 applications were received by the Earl B. and Loraine H Miller Foundation, with over $1,800,000 in grants awarded to fifty-nine of those applicants.  In order to be responsive to the needs and challenges posed by the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 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


Kids Education Programs | Long Beach



Please note: In order to best address the needs of our community’s children and provide effective support for our nonprofit partners, we are establishing a three-year award limit. Beginning with this 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.
