Before installing a new roof, Community Energy Project's building's infrastructure had partially collapsed from the deep pools of rainwater that collected during every storm (as shown in photo at left). Without the use of the building, CEP would be hard pressed to provide education and referrals for home safety and energy improvements to more than 2,000 families each year. MMT contributed $7,000 for a new roof, and CEP is now able to focus on its mission to help families maintain healthier and more livable homes, control utility costs and conserve natural resources.

Arts Umbrella used a Grassroots Grant from MMT for $22,500 to provide more than 100 children in the Eugene area with the opportunity to learn violin, viola, cello or string bass through its String Academy classes. Nearly 60 percent of students enrolled required full or partial scholarships to participate and would otherwise not have access to high-quality beginning instrumental music programs. The String Academies hold concerts in March and May so that students have the opportunity to show off their newly learned skills in front of a real live audience.
