Thrilled to have just completed our giving for the year. You'll find a list of our 2022 gifts here: https://www.goodmanfamilyfoundation.org/list-of-grants-awarded-930388.html
It took much thought and building of partnerships throughout the year to get to this point. Special thanks to our volunteer staff and board members: Andrea Vanessa Castillo, Patricia Rau, Pamela Hays, Mariette & Sandy Sawchuk, Susan Kenney, Eric Wan, and foundation donors Honmai & Joe Goodman.
Our new grants management system is live! We are now accepting LOIs in the area of Arts & Culture for 2023 grants. Our website has changed a bit since applicants will utilize our grants management system to submit LOIs instead of our website. If you have questions or run into issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here for you!
Our Spring grant cycle is well underway and we are no longer accepting new applications in Arts & Culture. Our 2022 Fall grant cycle is now open, we are accepting LOIs in the area of Education (internship opportunities). Our Health & Human Services grants will be made by invitation only, no LOIs are being accepted in this area of interest.
Later this year the foundation will be transitioning to the Foundant grants management system. This means that you will be submitting LOIs and grant proposals differently. We are a late adopter of Foundant so most of you are already familiar with the system. It's a learning curve for us so please bear with us. Our official "go live" date is tentatively scheduled for late July after our Education LOI deadline. Our website will be updated when the new system is ready for your use. In the meantime, it's business as usual.
Stay healthy and please feel free to reach out with questions.
Announcing a new board member! I am pleased to announce that Pamela Hays has been elected for a three-year term to our board of directors starting January 1, 2022. Pam works full-time at Intel Corporation and has been a volunteer program director for over five years in the areas of Arts & Culture and Health & Human Services. Pam lives in Portland Oregon and is passionate about healthy aging.
Earlier this week the board of directors completed its grantmaking for calendar year 2021. The foundation distributed funding in the total amount of $301,600. You can find a list of grants awarded at the following URL: https://www.goodmanfamilyfoundation.org/lists-of-grants-awarded.html
Our board of directors met on May 21, 2021 and awarded grants in the areas of Arts & Culture and Environment. The total amount of funding distributed in these two focus areas this calendar year is $120,000. Our Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 focuses are posted on the website. Feel free to reach out with questions.
It is my pleasure to announce that Pat Rau has rejoined the foundation as a volunteer Senior Advisor in the area of environment. The environment has always been a passion of hers and for over ten years she held the position of Program Officer in the Environment where she mainly focused on oceans and marine issues. Pat has returned after taking a few years off and she is working with Michele to create a docket of grant opportunities around forest resiliency. Join me in welcoming Pat Rau to this new position!
The Foundation welcomes new faces and changes to our organization starting January 2021.
First, Joe Goodman will be keeping his title as Chairman of the Board but he is stepping aside as President so that the next generation can assume a greater role.
Michele Goodman will be assuming the role of President & CEO and Eric Wan will be our new Treasurer & Secretary.
We are excited to announce that Susan Kenney, a 15-year volunteer program officer with the foundation, has accepted a board position with us. As part of this transition she will relinquish her program officer work to others.
And we are thrilled to announce that Andrea Vanessa Castillo has agreed to join us as a volunteer program officer in the area of Education. Andrea's experience as an intern at WorldOregon (an internship that our foundation funded!) and DEI knowledge will be extremely valuable in moving our work forward.
We extend a big congratulations to all!
