HCAO awarded MRG Foundation Grant
Health Care for All-Oregon was recently awarded a $15,000 general support grant from the MRG Foundation. MRG Foundation’s mission is to “inspire people to work together for justice and mobilize resources for Oregon communities as they build collective power to change the world.” We are very grateful for this generous support and look forward to carrying out some important project work in support of our mission.
Included in the goals under the grant will be increasing involvement of diverse communities, expanding and improving our database, training speakers and expanding our speakers’ bureau, event development and strengthening our statewide chapter and volunteer coordination infrastructure.
Some of the activities in support of these goals will include translation of educational materials, recruitment of members from diverse communities, creating reports and data fields in database to support community organizing, in-person and Webinar speaker trainings and developing a network of regional chair/volunteer coordinators.
Thanks to HCAO Director of Operations Linda Alband for her assistance on completing and processing this grant. If interested in helping with project work in support of the grant projects, contact Lee Mercer.
