On Nov. 12, 2018 MRG’s grant making committee approved second year grants totaling $139,000 to 13 organizations.The grants are for general support for the second year of MRG’s two-year commitment awards. Through its activist-led committees, MRG Foundation has funded over 80 groups working for social change in Oregon in 2018.
Sarah Loose, Senior Lead Organizer with the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice (IMIrJ) said of MRG's grant: "MRG's support allows IMIrJ to accompany people and communities of faith across the state as they step outside of their comfort zones and take bold, courageous action in support of immigrant justice, rooted in love.”
MRG looks forward to sharing additional stories from other grantees in the near future.
Congratulations to each of the fall 2018 grantees:
