MRG Foundation has established the Since Time Immemorial Fund, which will rapidly deploy resources to our tribal communities when opportunity or need arise—across the region. This fund will be activated to respond to COVID-19, in recognition of evidence of hot spots in current tribal communities and because, even weeks after emergency federal appropriation, tribes are still awaiting relief.
MRG has seeded this fund with $50,000 from our COVID-19 Community Response Fund; two other founding partners, Oregon Community Foundation and Group Health Foundation have already coming forward to help - and the fund has grown to $225,000. We ask that you join us in this effort by making a bold gift that matches the urgency of this moment and the depth of the need that is already rising.
We are putting all our money and human resources where our values are and we’ll continue to lead with our values throughout this crisis - we appreciate and are honored to work for and alongside you.
