How to Participate
Make a donation to the Oregon Cultural Trust. The cultural tax credit is generous: up to $500 for individuals, $1,000 for couples filing jointly, $2,500 for corporations. And when you add up the deductions and credit, at the federal and state levels, the tax savings for cultural giving are impressive.
To claim your tax credit you simply make a matching gift or gifts – same or greater dollar amount – to any combination of cultural nonprofits in Oregon.
If you’re a member of a public broadcaster, an historical society or a museum of any kind, or if you’re making cash donations to a library or school foundation, an art center or nonprofit gallery, a heritage organization or a performing arts group, you’re eligible to make a matching gift to the Trust for which you may claim a 100% Oregon tax credit.
Oregon’s unique cultural tax credit is a powerful incentive. But the reason to give is to sustain and develop Oregon’s arts, heritage and humanities.
The Cultural Trust was designed to direct support to cultural nonprofits in a multitude of ways. But it all starts with you.
