We are you. The Cultural Trust is Oregonians sustaining, developing and participating in our arts, heritage and humanities. Supporting Oregon's culture makes practical sense. As an investment, it creates vibrant communities by strengthening the economy, improving education, and bettering our quality of life.
The Oregon Cultural Trust provides funding for Oregon’s cultural community. With a $200 million endowment as our goal, the Trust will secure sustainable funding for Oregon culture in perpetuity. The Cultural Trust program is unique and has been ranked with the bottle bill and vote-by-mail as among Oregon’s most forward-thinking public policy measures.
In the first 10 years of the Trust, 21,000 Oregonians have raised $25 million for culture, created more than $9 million in grants that benefit every county in Oregon and have built the endowment to nearly $15.5 million.
