IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Record Fundraising at Partners Party
Our Partners Party fundraiser went online and was a smashing success, raising over $40,000 for the abuse prevention work of Guardian Partners. Many thanks to all our generous donors and supporters. Your gifts allow us to not only stay afloat during the Covid crisis, but to expand and explore new opportunities.
A special thank you to our 2020 Partners Party sponsors:
We were very grateful to have funding renewed (albeit at a reduced level) from Multnomah County for the new fiscal year. The County is in a period of restricted budgeting, so we the decision to continue support is a testament to how important our work is to the community. Thank you to the Multnomah County Commissioners, especially Commissioner Sharon Meieran, who was a strong advocate for Guardian Partners.
In June, Guardian Partners was pleased to be awarded a $5,000 grant from the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation to fund our Monitoring program in Lane County. Executive Director Marc Kochanski (pictured below) was honored to accept the check at a June 26 ceremony at Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, OR.
2020 Annual Report Available
Last year was a strong one for Guardian Partners - we monitored over 50 cases and benefited 5,000 Oregonians through our classes. Check out our annual report to see more about how we're doing.
We're seeking additional trainers for Guardianship, Conservatorship and Personal Representative classes for new fiduciaries.
