Former Georgia Governor and U.S. Senator Zell Miller felt that serving others was the greatest calling in life. He built a lasting legacy during four decades of public service that has impacted the lives of millions of Georgians. His vision was to build a brighter future for Georgia by investing in human capital.

Established in 2016, the Zell Miller Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to preserve Zell’s legacy through programs that promote education, leadership, and service. The foundation accomplishes its mission through the annual Legacy Gala, Zell Miller Leadership Institute, Georgians of HOPE, and the Shirley Miller Scholarship Fund.
