The Multnomah County Cultural Coalition (MCCC) is the volunteer-led, 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 nonprofits per the Multnomah County Cultural Plan.


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 MCCC is committed to making our resources available to every member of Multnomah County without regard to national origin, race, ethnicity, color, age, marital or familial status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, educational background, disability, religion, veteran status, political opinion, physical appearance, or source of income. We expect our grantees to uphold this policy in their work.


The MCCC’s Community Cultural Participation Grant Program (CCP) supports community-based cultural events, programs, and organizations. Because of the lingering impacts of the pandemic, we will offer an expanded range of funding types to help your organizations adapt to current challenges. For this grant cycle we are inviting applications for general operating support, events/programs support, and capital/capacity-building investments. Grants range between $1,000 and $3,000.


MCCC is led by an all volunteer board representing some of the many threads that weave Multnomah County together. The Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) provides fiscal sponsorship and grant administration support.
