    Dear Eligible Cultural Nonprofit,

    We need your help to provide relief funding to Oregon’s cultural community!

    The Oregon Cultural Trust is preparing an Emergency Cultural Relief Fund (ECRF) in response to losses incurred by cultural nonprofits during the COVID19 pandemic. Up to $10 million in emergency funds may be made available to support employment and/or operating expenses, following review and approval by the Oregon State Legislature.

    Members of the Trust’s list of participating cultural nonprofits,  will be eligible to apply for funds. Please help us build a strong case for the program and develop an equitable funding model by completing this survey by May 17. The survey will take 3-5 minutes to complete.

    Emergency Cultural Relief Fund Survey

    Please contact the Cultural Trust at (503) 986-0088 with any questions or concerns, and thank you for continued work during these exceptional times.

    Not a member of the Trust’s list of participating cultural nonprofits?

    We welcome applications from Oregon cultural nonprofits who wish to be added to our qualified list. For consideration please submit:

    • Proof of headquarters in Oregon (official letterhead is accepted);
    • A copy of the Internal Revenue Service letter verifying your organization’s 501(c)(3) tax- exempt status;
    • A copy of your mission statement and/or bylaws for review to show that the organization operates with a mission and goals where “culture” is central. This means that the purpose of your organization is rooted in the arts, heritage, history, historic preservation or the humanities.
