Corporate and Foundation Support
The Miller Center of Public Affairs has a long history of developing productive relationships with corporations and foundations. During the course of the last 30 years, the Miller Center and its philanthropic partners have worked together to fund important programs of national significance:
- Nine National Commissions including the "Commission on Federal Election Reform" co-chaired by former Presidents Ford and Carter in 2001. The commission was generously funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
- The Miller Center's renowned Forum speaker series, offering 60 events each year, web cast live and broadcast through a partnership with WVPT public television.
- Americanpresident.org, one of our country's most comprehensive and informative web sites on the presidency. Americanpresident.org, which receives over 1.5 million hits per month, has been recognized as one of the top free resource web sites in the nation by the American Library Association.
A partnership with the Miller Center of Public Affairs offers a philanthropic opportunity for corporations and foundations to positively effect national public policy by facilitating and promoting non-partisan research, reflection and reporting on the critical issues of our time.
