Miller-Dwan Foundation 2019 Annual Report


Annual Report cover 2019

In the lives of the youngest and oldest among us. For the good of individuals in desperate need and for the greater good of everyone living in our region.

As the donors, friends, patients and families touched by the Miller-Dwan Foundation, kindness defines us. It’s all around us. Fostering hope. Building community. Repairing relationships. Saving lives. And it’s clearly in us, displayed daily in generous acts and brave choices, in your gracious gifts and the quiet strength of your compassion.

Our Powerful Kind responds to crisis, heals unseen wounds and transforms suffering into possibility. It is the kindness that moves mountains.
