Our Mission

The Virts Miller Foundation was created to support the pillars of a thriving community: Education, Culture & Historic Preservation, Health, and Opportunity Development. The Foundation’s multifaceted mission reinforces cultural significance; ignites initiatives that fuel business and economic growth; strengthens and enhances access to healthcare available to the community; encourages and bolsters educational institutions particularly for economically disadvantaged students; and mentors and develops the next generation of up and coming leaders.
