Multnomah County, Oregon


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.
