James & Aileen Miller Charitable Fund

Jim and Aileen Miller, married for more than sixty years, spent the majority of their lives living and working in Central New York. Jim held a great aptitude for all things mechanical and founded the J.E. Miller Corporation. His wife, Aileen, worked as a school teacher. When Aileen’s health began to fail, Jim sold his company and visited Aileen twice a day while she was living in a nursing facility. The kindness and compassion they held for each other is something that their friends remember fondly. The Millers chose to name the Community Foundation as a beneficiary of their estate. Their foresight in establishing charitable provisions in their estate plan will allow both their kindness and the fruits of their success to continue supporting the community they called home. Grants from this fund will be distributed to meet broad community needs for inner-city neighborhoods.
