Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation Mission Statement
The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) 3 Foundation dedicated to honoring the life of our inspiration, Jim Miller, by supporting the healing of mental and physical illness through surfing and ocean related activities. Through recreational, educational and mentoring programs, the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation will bring together surfers, educators, therapists, lifeguards and friends to help people affected by mental and physical illness feel the joy and healing power of the ocean and surfing.
In 2004, after the passing of our founder, we formed the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation. This Foundation was founded by his family and close friends with the goal of keeping Jimmy’s vision alive. We could never have imagined the amazing outpouring of community support that has been generated over the last 8 years. Today, the JMMF has become one of the most important charitable organizations in the South Bay. The Foundation’s Ocean Therapy program has helped thousands of at risk youth as well as wounded marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. We are very proud of what the JMMF has become and we are ecstatic that we have been able to keep Jimmy’s vision alive.
The Foundation also supports other charities that support the protection, preservation, appreciation and safe enjoyment of the oceans, beaches and marine environment. Our mission is to carry on the legacy of Jim’s pure love of surfing by showing the ocean’s power to heal.
Through your generous support of the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation we will assist many more organizations and impact the lives of many.
