The Millhiser Smith Foundation was established in 2007 as a way for the owners and employees of the Millhiser Smith Agency to give back to the communities in which we live and work. The Foundation's goal is to assist nonprofit organizations, based on their direct needs and their ability to make a difference in our community.

"I want to make a difference in the lives of people who I see in my daily world. If we can achieve that, maybe it will spread," said one employee.

Our motto? Be a pebble. Join the Ripple.

This phrase is based on the idea that the positive actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects. It is important that the The Millhiser Smith Foundation be an active, supportive organization for growth and caring. Our hope is to start a positive ripple right here in eastern Iowa.

You can help. You can benefit.

The Foundation is supported by contributions from owners, employees and partner companies. If you would like to make a donation, request support, or learn more about how we impact the community, please visit
