    Overview of Organization

    Greater Than (formerly “I Have a Dream” Oregon) is seeking applicants for the full-time position of Senior Director of Development (SDD).  This is an opportunity to join a mission-driven team unified around educational equity and a vision to break the cycle of poverty and change the game at a systemic level for children and families in poverty-impacted communities. 


    The mission of Greater Than (GT) is to support and empower students from poverty-impacted communities to thrive in school, college and career. To that end, we identify and convene quality best-in-class partners and recruit them to join our collaborative whole school model. Our programs:

    ·         Focus on students and families from Oregon’s most poverty-impacted communities;

    ·         Promote culturally responsive family engagement. We work closely with parents, who are the primary drivers of program priorities;

    ·         Are long-term: we work with students and their families from Pre-K through college and career;

    ·         Are inclusive: we do not “cherry pick” students and are deeply committed to educational equity.

    We are pushing to transform public education outcomes in Oregon. We believe equitable education is a right. We listen to students, teachers, administrators, families, and one another so that we may correctly advocate, promote opportunities, and remove barriers.  We work alongside community partners and local school districts.  We are flexible problem solvers who strive to create the conditions necessary to achieve equitable education for historically underserved students.

    Greater Than’s national demonstration project of a whole school model is based at Alder Elementary School in the Rockwood community. Rockwood is one of the most culturally and racially diverse suburban neighborhoods of Multnomah County, a vibrant community poised for city reinvestment to address the unmet needs of families that call Rockwood home. Deeply impacted by poverty, gentrification, and Portland’s housing crisis, Rockwood is a high opportunity community. We follow students from Alder through Reynolds and H.B. Lee Middle Schools, Reynolds High School and post-secondary education in the Reynolds School District (RSD) through a highly collaborative shared-cost model with more than 70 nonprofit and higher education partners.  84% of these students are children of color and many are bi-lingual, with over 20 languages represented. For more information, please visit www.togethergreater.org.

    Goals and Beliefs

    Our ultimate goal is that all students obtain a living wage job. We also spur systemic change in poverty-impacted communities by creating innovative, systemic approaches to remove barriers and create opportunities for educational success and by leveraging our whole school model as a demonstration project from which others can learn. We strive to create the conditions necessary to achieve equitable education for historically underserved students. We work alongside community partners and local school districts.

    We believe that all children start out curious, creative and full of potential. We believe that families wake up every day and do their very best to support their children.

    Equity Statement

    We believe that cultural, institutional, and individual racism creates disparities and barriers that are neither fair nor equitable.

    We are committed to advancing racial equity as a foundational element of all aspects of our work and with all of our stakeholders. In addition to racism, we recognize that ALL other forms of bias must also be addressed in order to create a more just and equitable society.

    We remain steadfast in our commitment to comprehensive community partnerships to help close the racialized achievement gap in our schools and colleges.  We strive to create a truly equitable organization: one where students, families, and communities are welcomed and supported, where their faces, voices, and experiences are reflected and valued.

    We listen and respond with great care and intentionality to the students and families with whom we partner.  We consistently analyze our organizational commitment to equity and inclusion as expressed through our policies and practices, our workforce and board composition, and engagement of students and families as central guiders of our work. We are committed to collaborating with other organizations towards advancing equity for all.
