The Meyer Memorial Trust (MMT) – originally called the Fred G. Meyer Charitable Trust – was founded in 1982 by Fred Meyer, who started the chain of Pacific Northwest-based retail stores that bears his name. Today, his values – to innovate, take risks, embrace diversity, adapt to changing circumstances, contribute to economic development/parity and to develop the power of the mind – continue to create and inform the culture of MMT, influencing its activities and the role that it plays in the region. Currently, with assets of approximately $785 million, it is still among the largest private foundations in the nation. The Trust’s mission is to work with and invest in organizations, communities, ideas and efforts that contribute to a flourishing and equitable Oregon.
The Program Officer, Resilient Social Sector will be a dynamic, engaged contributor to the new Resilient Social Sector portfolio team, working to develop and implement new approaches to build the capacity of the social sector and individual organizations as important contributors to a vibrant and equitable life in Oregon and agents of social change. The Program Officer will contribute strong community relationships, creativity, enthusiasm, and organizational development savvy to support the success of the Trust’s Resilient Social Sector portfolio.
