We’re looking for great people like you to join the planning committee!

Justice Within Reach (JWR) is MRG Foundation’s signature event to celebrate the work for social change across Oregon and inspire new levels of giving for our general fund grantmaking. The event serves as the cornerstone to MRG’s annual fundraising initiatives and brings together a diverse group of community leaders and philanthropists to celebrate recent social justice victories.

JWR is looking for enthusiastic committee members who hold the mission and vision of MRG Foundation and are willing to help MRG plan and build a successful Spring 2019 event.

Responsibilities of committee members include:

  • Utilize your own connections, networks and skills to build toward successfully meeting the goals of the event
  • Solicit businesses, organizations, foundations and allies for sponsorship and contributions to the silent auction and other aspects of the event
  • Support the creation of the event program to engage and invigorate guests so they feel inspired and excited about the future of social justice
  • Support in ticket sales to assure a full house and that MRG’s community feels invited, welcomed and able to participate

Time Commitment:

Volunteers commit three to six hours a month. JWR committee meets monthly on the first Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m., with additional work taking place between meetings. Dinner is provided at monthly committee meetings.

Whether you are an event pro or a first-time volunteer who supports the mission of MRG Foundation, JWR committee would love to have your involvement. Committee members gain opportunities for relationship building, networking with other social justice leaders and event skills building.
