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.

It all started with an encouraging thought. The idea that you can change the world if you start with what’s right in front of you.

Millhiser Smith Agency, one of the largest locally-owned independent insurance agencies in eastern Iowa, wanted to make it easy for its employees to spark that change in the communities where they live and work. So, in 2007, it established the Millhiser Smith Foundation. Our motto: “Be a pebble. Join the ripple.” We proudly support growth and caring in eastern Iowa by assisting local families and nonprofit organizations based on need and the ability to make a difference here at home.
