Welcome to the July newsletter! Between bumper crops of blueberries, Independence Day fireworks, time with our families and hot, breezy days, we are having a busy, delightful summer at Meyer. Hope you are, too!
There’s a lot happening at Meyer this month: the retirement of our veteran financial steward, the hiring of our new chief investment officer, the announcement of a new equity statement and a heads-up to our Affordable Housing partners about a new RFP coming next week.
May has been a rewarding month at Meyer Memorial Trust, where 20 organizations have been awarded grants, program-related investments and initiative awards totaling just over $3.8 million.
Spring has been a time of renewal at MMT! Help us welcome two new hires. And we're looking to fill the position of Controller...
April is proving an exciting month at MMT, with several things we just can’t wait until our regularly scheduled e-newsletter to share. We have new staff to introduce, a capital survey we encourage you to take, a new investment portal to announce and more.
It's been another productive month at Meyer Memorial Trust! First, we awarded more than $4 million in grants in February to 62 organizations in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. Grantees represent a wide range of issues and interests in communities all across our region.
This is a very exciting and critical time at Meyer Memorial Trust. We have three management level positions open at once: Director of Human Resources, Director of Communication and Chief Investment Officer. Our hiring decisions will help determine the path MMT takes for at least the next decade.
Well, the day has finally come for my last news alert to all of you. After today I am officially semi-retired. What that means is I will no longer be Director of Communication and Learning. I will, however, continue to work to move Oregon Unlimited forward through the end of 2014
At the December program meeting, MMT trustees made 22 grants for nearly $4.2 million. Five of the awards–totaling $1,085,333–went to organizations that help Oregonians meet basic needs, as we enter the winter season when poverty hurts the most.
