Oregon Cultural Trust

The Oregon Cultural Trust was authorized in 1999 to increase public and private support for Oregon's arts, heritage and humanities. Its visionary goal: create a sustainable $200 million permanent endowment for culture. Since 2002, Oregonians have contributed over $25 million to the Trust. The Trust has awarded over $11 million in grants to every corner of the state. Over 40,000 cultural license plates are fueling the Trust's efforts in all regions.
