In Memory of Dr. Richard Milich -


Over the course of 2021, we will feature 100 Heroes who have been instrumental in our fight for the basic needs, education and financial stability of our neighbors for the past century. To learn more about how we are continuing to serve the Bluegrass in 2021, click here.


Today we are remembering Dr. Richard Milich, longtime supporter and friend of United Way of the Bluegrass.


Most recently, Milich supported UWBG as a member of the Tocqueville Society, a giving community for philanthropic leaders. The Tocqueville Society recognizes those around our region who have devoted their time, talent and funds to tackle the most serious issues faced by our communities.


Rich was a psychology professor at the University of Kentucky. He was one of the country’s leading experts in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, having published 23 book chapters and books and 160 scientific articles


Rich truly valued philanthropy, and was also an avid supporter of Greenhouse 17 and the Department of Psychology at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Milich passed away on November 7, 2020 and is survived by many family members and friends, including his sister-in-law, nephews, grand-nephew and grand-niece.


We are thankful for Dr. Milich’s support and his devotion to the Bluegrass community.
