We are thrilled to announce that MYS has been awarded a $120,000 Capacity Building grant over the next two years to support a multi-year marketing and communications project that will research, design and implement new communications to drive income and support equitable community engagement. Combined with our recent award from the Oregon Community Foundation, this $155,000 two year initiative allows us hire staff and build capacity to grow the organization. Many many thanks to the Meyer Memorial Trust for this incredible award.
MYS is thrilled to announce that the Oregon Community Foundation has awarded us with a 2-year grant of $35,000 to support a multi-year effort to raise our profile and tell the story of our organization. This project will align our communications with our strategic and artistic plans in order to meet and grow our multi-year earned and contributed income goals and to ensure the availability of tuition assistance funding so that no child is turned away due to financial constraints.
