Meyer Memorial Trust to hold meeting in Gorge

PORTLAND — Meyer Memorial Trust – one of Oregon’s largest private foundations – will meet in the Columbia Gorge Monday, June 24.

The meeting will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Columbia Gorge Community College Indian Creek Campus, Room 311.

Meyer Memorial Trust Program Officer Sally Yee will appear at these events to provide advice about seeking grants from Meyer Memorial Trust and to collect information about the needs of nonprofits and communities in the area.

The Two Way Street Tour (TWST) program began in 2007 to increase the foundation’s outreach efforts to help nonprofit organizations better understand the foundation and its programs as well as to help the trust learn more about the communities and organizations it serves.

Through May 2013, MMT staff had held meetings in 80 communities in 34 counties throughout Oregon and southwest Washington. Meyer Memorial Trust reports on the meetings on its website: www.mmt.org/cate

“These TWST meetings are one way we create an ongoing dialogue with our communities to better understand the issues and challenges they face and learn about the wide range of approaches they have taken to address their needs,” Meyer Memorial Trust CEO Doug Stamm said. “We hope these meetings encourage conversation, networking and sharing resources and ideas among community groups.”
