After 25 years of grantmaking, Meyer Memorial Trust engaged FSG Social Impact Advisors to help us increase our social impact, provide greater clarity of purpose and prepare for continuous improvement. Included in this assessment was an examination of ways Meyer could better address some of the most critical needs in Oregon. The planning process was designed to identify opportunities that reflected the needs of the state and build upon Meyer’s history, values, interests and capabilities. Using these criteria, three areas emerged as issues for strategic initiatives where the Trust began taking a leadership role – Quality K-12 Public Education, Access to Affordable Housing and Willamette River Basin Restoration.
Eight years later, Meyer committed to focus more deliberately in the areas of education, affordable housing and environment, while continuing to support a resilient social sector in Oregon. Read more about our evolution in the About Our Hiatus tab on the right.
