Helping low-income individuals through empowering grants.
Safety net support to keep people self-sufficient
The Barbara and Stephen Miller Foundation seeks to help low-income individuals whose path to self-sufficiency is blocked by a specific, identifiable obstacle. In providing emergency grant funds of $1,000 or less, the foundation serves as a safety net resource to sustain those in need of one-time assistance when facing an unexpected financial burden.
The foundation strives to meet its mission by partnering with grassroots organizations that work directly with low-income individuals, can identify appropriate grant recipients in need and offer the capacity to oversee the grant process to ensure the most effective use of philanthropic funds.
