Meyer Memorial Trust, established from the estate of Fred G. Meyer in 1982, is one of the largest private foundations in Oregon, with current assets of roughly $790 million. Over its lifetime, Meyer has awarded grants and program-related investments in excess of $758 million to more than 3,380 organizations. Today, Meyer focuses on work in Oregon in four areas Oregonians have identified as crucial to making the state better for all its residents: housing, education, the environment and building stronger communities. Meyer also funds ongoing initiatives related to affordable housing and education policy. Meyer is a founding member of the Oregon Immigrant and Refugee Funders Collaborative, which addresses crucial and time-sensitive issues facing immigrants and refugees across the state. These efforts, and those on the horizon, support Meyer’s vision of a flourishing and equitable Oregon.
Meyer seeks a Director of Program Strategy, a key member of the executive team, to serve as a dynamic and forward-thinking leader who collaborates to deliver a successful programmatic strategy and process that highlights the strengths of each portfolio and provides opportunities to leverage the underlying intersections among them. As the program lead, the individual will strategize with program teams to transform ideas into workable, executable solutions and work with the entire organization to facilitate ongoing learning and evaluation. This role will oversee and support a talented team of portfolio directors, program officers, fellows, program associates and a senior administrative assistant.
