Application Invitation/Registration

All grant applications for the Elinor and T.W. Miller, Jr. Foundation are by invitation only.  After our board determines an interest in accepting a grant request from your organization, you will receive an email asking you to register your organization. You will be asked for your contact information and organization information.  You will also be asked to choose a user name and password.  After you have registered successfully, a confirmation email will be sent to your email address.  At this point you will be able to access the website and begin your application.

Application Process

The grant application process is an intuitive step-by-step process.  Please provide as much information you can in the space allotted.  If the field has a maximum space allotment, the review committee is looking for a succinct answer.  If more information is required there will be other areas in the process that will allow for further information to be given.

For any questions about the grant application process, please contact us.

Grant Determination/Grant Acceptance

Our board meets on an “as needed” basis determined by the amount of grants received.  Please be patient in receiving a response from the board.  Once the board has met and has reviewed your grant application you will receive an approval or denial via email.  If approved, you will receive a Grant Acceptance Agreement shortly following.  Please login for instructions on how to electronically sign off on the Grant Acceptance Agreement.  We ask that these acceptance agreements be completed in a timely manner.

Grant Payment/Reporting

When we receive the executed Grant Acceptance Agreement a check will be mailed to your organization in a timely manner.  If the grant is a “dollar for dollar” matching grant, instructions will be sent you in the Grant Acceptance Agreement regarding payment.

Grant Reporting

All grants require a final report on the impact the grant has had on the organization.  The report should include photographs or video showing what the grant has helped your organization accomplish.  Any media produced for the report should be in a format that can also be useful to the grantee to communicate to their donor base the impact their organization has on the community it serves or to increase their donor base.  The Grant Acceptance Agreement will explain any further details pertaining to the final report, such as deadlines.
