Other information for potential grantees:
We have suspended our current responsive and grassroots grantmaking programs as of March 15, and are continuing to pay out grants and review grant requests that are already in our pipeline. Between now and fall, we are reorganizing our grantmaking into the priority funding areas listed above in “program funding areas”. We will also continue our work through the Affordable Housing and Willamette River initiatives and the Chalkboard Project. During this redesign transition period, we will also work with stakeholders within the four priority funding areas to inform our process. To stay up to date on our future grantmaking direction, please sign up for our news alerts at www.mmt.org.
The Meyer Memorial Trust continues to refine its grant process. Please review the Trust website for changes in the process prior to submitting a grant proposal.
