SASS was honored to be the recipient of a $15,000 grant awarded by the students in the University of Oregon’s Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management’s Philanthropy and Grantmaking Seminar this June.  Students researched three local organizations and then split into teams to advocate on behalf of each of the organizations.  We are so appreciative that the students chose SASS!

The grant is made possible by the Faye and Lucille Stewart Foundation.
