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. 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, Education will be a dynamic, engaged contributor to the overall efforts of the Trust, working to develop and implement new approaches to promote equity in the education sector. MMT’s Strong and Equitable Education Portfolio will focus on disparities in the education system in Oregon, working within the context of early childhood, public K-12, higher education, and workforce training, and will identify and advocate for policy approaches and solutions to promote equity in both opportunities and outcomes. The Education portfolio will also engage the nonprofit voice in education, especially around advocacy for communities in which disparities are most pronounced, particularly around programmatic initiatives.
