Meyer Memorial Trust has awarded SKCE with a 2-year grant to advance equitable education. Our gratitude goes out to MMT for being such an incredibly strong supporting organization for our programs and civic activities!
MMT started their new Equitable Education Portfolio about 10 months ago, and they have offered 49 grants to organizations across Oregon totaling $7.2 million over 3 years.
MMT’s vision is that all students have an opportunity to access meaningful public education. The focus of the portfolio is on Oregon students, so they can realize their academic achievement goals with disparities at all levels of education removed.
MMT’s three key goals are:
Building a unified movement to advance equitable education.
Creating systems- and policy-level impact.
Improving student achievement and college and career readiness.
57 nonprofits were invited to submit full grant proposals, and SKCE was one of the 49 invited applicants to be awarded a grant.
