Philip S. Miller (PSM) Grant

Douglas County Partners with Douglas County Community Foundation

Douglas County nonprofit organizations to benefit from County’s grant-making partnership with Community Foundation

Through a Memorandum of Understanding adopted at the County’s Aug. 23 Business Meeting, Douglas County transferred administration of its Philip S. Miller Grant Program to Douglas County Community Foundation (DCCF), in a pilot program beginning in 2022 and continuing through 2025.

While the Foundation will act as administrator of the program, the County Commissioners will continue their accountability for the funds via evaluation of funding recommendations and final decision-making on funds distribution.  Read More…

About the PSM Trust

Photo of Philip S. MillerThe PSM Grant Program is the legacy of Douglas County businessman and philanthropist Philip Simon Miller and his wife, Jessie. In 1980, the Millers, having no children, established The Philip S. Miller Charitable Trust and named nine beneficiaries to receive an annual cash distribution from income generated by the trust upon their deaths. Trust distributions are to be used “exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes.”

As one of the beneficiaries of the Philip S. Miller Charitable Trust, Douglas County has established the Philip S. Miller Grant Program to administer the funds received from the Trust. This program supports a broad array of services designed to enhance the quality of life of Douglas County residents. Income from the Trust varies from year to year.
