Recent Changes to the Miller-Dwan Foundation Grant Process



Recently, the Miller-Dwan Foundation Board of Directors undertook a process designed to review, assess and adjust our grantmaking strategies and policies. The process, completed and approved in November 2016, is rolling out with the new year.


While little has changed as a result of our review, key changes are as follows:

  1. Grant Deadline Changes

Grant cycles and deadline dates have changed from three cycles per year to two.

Deadlines are:

March 1 for an April decision

September 1 for an October decision

  1. We will prioritize larger healthcare-related collaborative efforts for greater systemic impact.


Applicants must contact the foundation to discuss possible funding prior to completing our online application.

If you are requesting the opportunity to apply for funding, please provide a brief synopsis of your request, the dollar amount you would like to request and an indication of how you believe your effort fits the priority areas of the Miller-Dwan Foundation.
