At the October meeting of the Mt. Tabor Neighborhood Association (MTNA), fiscal sponsorships through SE Uplift were renewed. The five sponsorships provide neighbors with opportunities to give tax deductible donations to different projects in the neighborhood: Thorburn Safety Project, Mt. Tabor Gateway, Emergency Preparedness, Mt. Tabor Park Reservoir Advocacy, and the General Account for MTNA. To donate, go to mttaborpdx.org/copy-2-of-connect-get-involved-2
