A big THANK YOU to the MRG Foundation.
The MRG (McKenzie River Gathering) Foundation just awarded grants to twenty-one social change groups across Oregon. Among those were five emerging groups, including Rogue Climate. These emerging groups are working throughout Oregon on a wide variety of issues. As they say at MRG, we are working towards a “Just and Joyful Oregon.” The $8,000 MRG awarded Rogue Climate is our first foundation grant and the largest single gift we’ve received so far.
These resources are critical as we grow our organization. The financial support will help us secure meeting spaces, organize community events, and create sustainable structures for our work. Just as important as the tangible impact of these resources, this grant will help us inspire and leverage support among other funders and build momentum for our work.
“With their skills, their energy, and the support of MRG we know that Rogue Climate will move us closer to an Oregon where people and ecosystems can thrive!” says MRG Grant Manager Cris Lira.
MRG Foundation funds groups organizing for social, economic and environmental justice throughout Oregon. Like MRG, Rogue Climate believes that everyone plays a role in creating and sustaining this world. By building community, living our values, and working together towards this vision, we participate in the creation of justice and inspire hope for the future.
