MRG Foundation Supports Wildfire Relief Funds
As they continue funding organizations and efforts that are focused on BIPOC, Immigrant, Tribal communities, and social/racial, justice our partners at the MRG Foundation are supporting the following wildfire relief funds:
The Since Time Immemorial Fund
“Nearly every, if not all, Tribes in the Northwest have reservation land or culturally significant land that is on fire right now.” said Terri Parr, Executive Director, Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, the largest and most representative membership organization of Tribes in the region. “ATNI urges foundations and individuals to give to the Since Time Immemorial Fund at MRG Foundation to support Northwest Tribes with immediate relief efforts. Their funding and grants have been intentionally built to be activated at a times like this.” To learn more about the Since Time Immemorial Fund at MRG, click here.
CAUSA: Emergency Funding for Immigrant Communities
In recognition of the devastating effects that wildfires have had on immigrant Oregonians, the Oregon Worker Relief Fund Coalition is pivoting to raise and distribute funds to impacted individuals and families. “Our coalition leadership and network of navigating organizations are committed to responding to the needs of Oregon immigrants who are being affected or evacuated by wildfires, and we will continue responding to issues related to COVID-19. ,” said OWRF Coalition Chair Martha Sonato. “Therefore the OWRF Coalition encourages foundations and individuals to give to OWRF Coalition to support immediate relief efforts to serve the immigrant community across the state.” To contribute to the CAUSA Fund, click here.
