How To Apply

New Applicants

Organizations that have never applied for a Miller Foundation annual grant may follow these steps.  (Special donations made for events or projects, for Long Beach Gives campaigns, or by specific request are not considered part of the annual grants program.)


  1. Register your organization by clicking here and using the “Create New Account” button.
  2.  Log in to your portal and press “Apply” on the toolbar in your dashboard. From the next screen, select the “Apply” button for the appropriate request level to begin your Letter of Interest.  The Letter of Interest must be submitted by Wednesday, January 31, 2024 to allow enough time for confirmation of eligibility and completion of the application.
  3.  New applicants’ Letters of Interest will be screened during a pre-evaluation process.  If the organization is found eligible according to the information provided, an invitation to apply will be extended by February 10, 2024.
  4.  Those organizations with an invitation to apply will then complete the “Application” step and submit online by March 1, 2024.

Returning Applicants/Grantees

Organizations who have applied for an annual grant anytime from 2020 to present, regardless of whether you received a grant award, are invited to re-apply.


  1.  Recent applicants may use the same login credentials as last year to access the system.
  2.  If you forgot your credentials or are unable to log in, you can click on “forgot my password” for further instructions.
  3.  After you log in, you may begin the application process by inputting the Access Code (provided to you via email) at the top right of the page, then clicking “Apply.”  Be sure to scroll to find the correct category for your application.  Incorrect applications will not be considered.

Registration Questions

If you think that you or someone else at your organization has already registered in the system, DO NOT create a new account. This could result in loss of critical historical information for your organization. Instead, please contact our Executive Coordinator to receive your username. For general questions please visit our FAQ page.


Applications must be submitted online by March 1, 2024 to be considered for a grant during this cycle.
