Executive Director

James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation
May 31, 2022
Portland, Oregon
Job Type


The James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, evolving over the past 18 years under its original Board Chairman and Executive Director, envisions an Oregon where arts and culture thrive in supportive communities, and educational supports -- often beginning with early childhood learning experiences -- enable systemic improvements in education. The Miller Foundation invests in proven community bedrock institutions as well as small, upstart program models; in both cases, encouraging strategic approaches that enable grant funds to have significant, long-term effects on the arts and culture and education sectors.

The Miller Foundation seeks a new Executive Director to provide thoughtful strategic and practical operational leadership, promoting the fulfillment of the Foundation’s mission, while helping the Board of Directors realize their collective vision of maximizing human potential. The preferred candidate will have a compelling mix of experiences, skills, personal characteristics and motivations to collaborate, lead, manage, administer and advance the Foundation’s initiatives, grantmaking, evaluation and external engagement in order to achieve the Foundation’s purpose.
