Equity Foundation Update from Carl Creasey, Board Chair

By November 5, 2012 News No Comments

I am pleased to report the Equity Foundation is going through a period of unprecedented success.   Over the past year, the Equity Foundation has increased its visibility through events such as the Equity Awards, the Women’s Leadership Luncheon and our Halloween party, Bent.  In addition, the Foundation has attracted new contributors, advisors and Board members such as PSU Coach Sherri Murrell. None of this would have been possible without the continued support of our loyal donors and supporters.  Please accept my thanks for all your help.

Going forward, the Equity Foundation will continue to promote equity, diversity and inclusiveness through all that we do.  Our next scheduled event will be the Second Annual Equity Awards, where we will again recognize outstanding businesses that share our goals.   Last year’s event was a virtual sell-out attended by over 250 guests, so if you know a business that would be a great candidate, please have them apply.

For more information on nominating a business or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Joey Kerns at 503-231-5759 or visit our website at: http://www.equityfoundation.org/equity-foundation-calls-for-nominations-for-the-annual-equity-awards.

Equity is also in the process of searching for a new Executive Director to guide us through the upcoming years.  This will be a transparent process and the board is committed to finding an exceptional new leader to take over the role for this Foundation.  It is exciting to see this organization grow.

I am proud to be involved with the Equity Foundation and know we can make the world a better place. You all have proven, time and time again, that we can make a difference.

Thank you for your continued support and remember, “it is truly all about love”.


Carl Creasey

Board Chair
