From The Reser Family Foundation to our Community…
In reference to Martin Luther King’s powerful message… we believe all people must be valued by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. The hurt, pain and anger that so many of us are feeling is an expression of our reality that many times race still determines how people are treated in America.
At The Reser Family Foundation, we raise our voice against racism, hate and discrimination in our continuing work to strengthen and support our community. We stand side-by-side with our non-profit partners ready to listen and learn from one another, working together to break down barriers to racial and social justice.
If your organization is working collaboratively to make positive changes related to diversity, equity and inclusion in Oregon, please look at our grant programs to see if we can be of help to you now or in the future.
