The Cultural Trust will accept online applications for competitive Cultural Development grants until 5 p.m., Friday, May 15.
Cultural Development grants support significant cultural programs and projects in Oregon. Applications may be submitted in one of four broad categories: Access, Capacity, Creativity and Preservation. Only 501(c)(3) arts, heritage and humanities nonprofits based in Oregon are eligible to apply.
This round of Cultural Development grants will support activities that will take place between Aug. 1, 2013 and July 31, 2014.
Potential applicants are encouraged to visit the Cultural Trust website, www.culturaltrust.org/grants/development-grants, to view grant guidelines, answers to frequently asked questions and instructions to register for the webinar series “Grants Chat.”
For the 2012-13 grant period, the Trust awarded more than $1.5 million in grants in its three grant programs, including more than $500,000 in Cultural Development grants. Over the 10 years of its existence, the Trust has made more than $12.8 million in grants to Oregon nonprofits in all 36 Oregon counties.
Oregon’s county and tribal cultural coalitions, funded by the Cultural Trust, also award important grants to cultural programs in their communities. To find a coalition and its grant application information, visit www.culturaltrust.org/coalitions
