About the organizers of the event, Meyer Memorial Trust:

Vision:

A flourishing and equitable Oregon

Mission:

We work with and invest in organizations, communities, ideas and efforts that contribute to a flourishing and equitable Oregon.

Values:

As of December, 2011, Meyer Memorial Trust had made 6,687 awards for more than $554 million since it began operating in 1982.
The man behind the Meyer Memorial Trust – Fred G. Meyer – was ahead of his time. 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 our culture, influencing what we do and how we do it.

We fulfill our mission using a mix of strategic, proactive and responsive investments, including grant-making, loans, initiatives, commissioning research, supporting policy advocacy and a range of community and nonprofit engagement strategies.

First called the Fred G. Meyer Charitable Trust, this foundation was created by the late Fred G. Meyer, who built the chain of retail stores bearing his name throughout the Pacific Northwest. When Mr. Meyer died in 1978 at the age of 92, his will established the charitable trust, bequeathing it nearly two million shares of stock in Fred Myer Inc. In 1982, most of the designated funds were transferred from the estate and the charitable trust began operating. All stock in Fred Meyer Inc. was sold prior to the transfer.
