The Meyer Memorial Trust (“Meyer”) is a regional foundation with national influence. Originally called the Fred G. Meyer Charitable Trust, Meyer was founded in 1982 by Fred Meyer, who started the chain of Pacific Northwest-based retail stores that bears his name. With assets of approximately $775 million, it is among the largest private foundations in the region. With a staff of 40 and a board of six trustees, the work of Meyer is focused on strengthening the region, using a mix of strategic, proactive and responsive investments – including grantmaking, loans and initiatives, commissioning research, supporting policy advocacy – and championing a range of community and nonprofit engagement approaches.
Meyer seeks a new Chief Executive Officer to provide thoughtful strategic and operational leadership, with an eye toward promoting a more equitable and flourishing Oregon. The new CEO will be a proactive innovator who will continue to execute and deepen Meyer’s impact, grounded in Meyer’s recent redesign process. The preferred candidate will have appropriate experience and skills to lead, manage, and advance Meyer’s initiatives, grantmaking, evaluation and civic and community engagement to advance the Meyer’s mission in the short term and into the future.
