We've compiled the data and prepared a summary of awards made through our Responsive and Grassroots Grants programs during MMT's fiscal year 2012 (4/1/2011 through 3/31/2012). We invite you to take a look!
We are often asked how many applications we receive, how many are approved, and what the awards were for. So, to supplement Marie's monthly award announcements, I thought I'd provide some statistics on grants made through our Responsive Grants and Grassroots Grants programs in MMT's most recent fiscal year (April 1, 2010 through March 31, 2011).
I'm excited to tell you about a project I've had the privilege of working with for the past several months.
If you’ve perused our website, you may have come across a description of MMT’s investment in ocean conservation. MMT has always had a strong commitment to the stewardship of Oregon’s land-based natural resources. In 2006, we learned that an incredibly small portion of private funding for the environment goes to ocean conservation.
Our communications director, Marie Deatherage, has been urging more of the MMT staff to join the 21st century and blog! I want to get with the program, but honestly find the idea of blogging daunting to say the least. An experience I had as college English major, at the dawn of the digital age, may have some bearing.
If you got an “out of office” email reply from me earlier this month, it’s because I was attending the Grantmakers of Oregon and SW Washington (GOSW) conference in beautiful Astoria, Oregon. What happens at a grantmakers conference you may ask? Well, it’s an opportunity
In the first quarter of our current fiscal year (April 1 through June 30, 2010), Meyer Memorial Trust made 75 grants and 2 program related investment loans totaling approximately $5.9 million. These awards are listed in our Awards Database and are announced monthly on our website.
We've been asked by a number of attendees at both the Portland and Roseburg workshops to publish a list of all participants to facilitate networking from around the state. This request was also made by some who were not able to attend the workshop because they may want to participate
In July 2007, when Meyer Memorial Trust was considering its own future space needs, we posted a message on our blog asking readers to let us know what they thought of a nonprofit center in which multiple organizations share a facility and related resources. We received forty written responses and other phone calls from nonprofit organizations expressing enthusiasm for this concept.
With profound apologies to Kermit the Frog, we'd like to ask you about being green... As you may know, for several years MMT has had a policy encouraging "green" building practices in capital projects that seek funding from us. We have been especially interested in seeing construction that reduces use of fossil fuels and lowers ongoing energy costs for organizations.
