Charles "Chuck" D. Miller’s legacy is defined by leadership. He was an amazing business, civic and philanthropic leader in our community and will be sorely missed.
As a well-known philanthropist who donated his time, energy and dollars to many causes near and dear to his heart, Miller played an instrumental role in advancing United Way's mission to create pathways out of poverty as he firmly believed in making "a lasting and meaningful impact on the quality of life in our community."
When the economic downturn hit, Chuck Miller generously co-created the Mullin-Miller Million Dollar Match Fund with Peter Mullin to encourage giving to the Creating Pathways out of Poverty plan at a time when our residents needed it most.
Mr. Miller served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of United Way of Greater Los Angeles from 1995-2001. He was instrumental in turning the organization around and some of his key accomplishments included increasing the fundraising, enhancing the brand visibility of the organization, streamlining the operations and increasing the organization’s commitment to diversity which resulted in United Way of Greater Los Angeles winning the National Diversity Award given by United Way of America in 1997.
In lieu of flowers, Miller's family has requested that donations be made to the Charles D. Miller Legacy fund at United Way of Greater Los Angeles. Donations can be made on-line or mailed to United Way of Greater Los Angeles, c/o of the Charles D. Miller Legacy fund, 1150 South Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015.
