The Henry Miller Current Giving Fund

In memory of Henry Miller's 16th birthday, his fund is working to boost reading skills through the Quitman County Elementary After-School Tutoring Program. The Henry Miller Endowment teamed up with the Marks Project and a team from the School of Education at the University of Mississippi to reinforce reading skills in a targeted group of underperforming students , using Mission Acceleration, a regimented instruction model developed by the UM Center for Excellence in Literacy Instruction.

The project also invests in the future leadership of rural education by sending Ole Miss education students to different parts of the Delta, where they can get to know the people and the region firsthand and understand the circumstances behind its education deficiencies. The Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi holds the Henry Miller Fund and is honored to keep Henry's memory alive by connecting people who care with causes that matter.
