About the Oregon Cultural Trust
The OREGON CULTURAL TRUST is an innovative, statewide private-public
program raising significant new funds to support and protect Oregon’s
arts, humanities and heritage. In addition to the creation of a
long-term, protected endowment, funds are distributed annually through
three multi-faceted, wide-ranging grant programs. Donors to the Trust
are eligible for a 100% Oregon income tax credit for contributions of up
to $500 for individuals, $1,000 for couples filing jointly and $2,500
for corporations. To motivate Oregonians to increase direct giving to
cultural groups, Trust donors must also make matching gifts to one or
more of 1,100 cultural nonprofits in order to qualify for the credit.
Fourteen thousand (14,000) donors have contributed over $15 million to
the Cultural Trust since Oregon’s cultural tax credit took effect in
December 2002. More information: (503) 986-0088 or
In 2003, the Oregon legislature moved the operations of the Oregon
Cultural Trust to the Oregon Arts Commission, streamlining operations
and making use of the Commission’s expertise in grantmaking, arts and
cultural information and community cultural development. The Arts
Commission and the Cultural Trust are part of the Oregon Economic and
Community Development Department in recognition of the expanding role
arts and culture play in the broader social, economic and educational
arenas of Oregon communities.
