Friends of Gateway Green (FoGG) was formed as an Oregon nonprofit corporation in March 2009.  It is now in the process of filing an application with the IRS for 501(3)(c) tax-exempt status.  The goal is to complete this process before the end of 2010.

At start-up, the organization had a five-member board:

  • Linda Robinson (Chair)
  • Jeff Shindler (Secretary)
  • Tom Archer
  • Ted Gilbert
  • Jim Labbe
  • Will Heiberg
  • Beth Flanagan
  • Jocelyn Gaudi

Ted and Linda started the project in late 2005.  The organization was incorporated in March 2009. Some board members were added at that time; others joined the Board at a later date.
