Learn how to apply for your grant.

The cycle closes on October 11, 2017 at 11:59 PST.

The Multnomah County Cultural Coalition (MCCC) is the re-granting board of the Oregon Cultural Trust in Multnomah County. Monies donated to the Cultural Trust come back to Multnomah County and are distributed as grants to cultural non-profits per the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition Plan. Multnomah County is home to over 100 heritage, humanities, and arts non-profits. The mission of MCCC is to foster a community that is opportunity rich in cultural offerings, and increases the likelihood of cultural participation among the broadest possible spectrum of county residents.

The Oregon Cultural Trust receives its funding from donors who receive a generous state tax credit for giving as long as their contribution to the Trust is matched by equal or greater charitable gifts to any number of Oregon’s 1,450 cultural non-profits.

See the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition cultural plan here for more information.
