WHAT WE DO
A Greater Applegate (AGA) is a local community building organization exclusively serving the Applegate Valley. AGA connects with the community through various programs that aim to develop long-term, community vision and provide platforms for the community’s needs and ideas to be brought into focus. This effort is called the “20/20 Community Vision”. A Greater Applegate’s Board of Directors, staff, committee members, and volunteers are working together to make a stronger, more connected, and greater Applegate. AGA’s current community building programs include:
Nonprofit Network: The Nonprofit Network connects local and regional nonprofit organizations serving the Applegate Valley. The network provides opportunities for professional development, resource sharing and networking between participating organizations.
Business Network: The Business Network is a collective of Applegate Valley business owners who have a shared goal of creating a stronger, more prosperous Applegate Valley business community. The Business Network and its committees are undertaking projects that promote long-term economic sustainability in the Applegate Valley.
Neighborhood Connections Listening Sessions: From 2019-2020 AGA will be hosting a series of community meetings in various sub-regions or “neighborhoods” of the Applegate Valley. During the meetings residents are asked about challenges, opportunities, assets and gaps in their neighborhood and the greater Applegate Valley. Responses from these meetings will form the basis for AGA’s work in coming years.
