In response to the recent surge in hate speech, David Miller, on behalf of the Miller families, has established The Together Strong Community Fund under the management of the Jewish Foundation with a $1 million gift to help address antisemitism and bring the community together. With this commitment, the Miller Family is challenging the community to join together in this effort to collectively match or exceed their donation.

The fund will ignite a community-wide endeavor to use education, conversation, and interaction to combat the root causes of bias and will help augment short-term local security initiatives that are already underway in the Jewish community.


This generous gift will also support the ongoing work of local organizations, as well as new projects and programs—specifically, completing the funding needed for the Community Security Initiative (CSI), supporting the creation of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), and contributing to the work of OneJax.

"My family is fiercely devoted to the greater Jacksonville community, and we see this as an opportunity to show each other and the world that Jacksonville is better than the rogue comments of a misguided few. The time is now to forge alliances and promote education so everyone in our community can reach their personal potential in a just and equitable society that we are proud to call our home."
