Summer 2021 Update

Last fall, we launched several pilot programs as part of our Foundation’s efforts to offer fast and flexible support for the communities we serve during the dual crises of the pandemic and wildfire impacts. The applications for these programs will be closed after June 30, 2021.

From July through September 2021, we are processing previously submitted applications and evaluating our pilot programs. We will open our next grant cycle October 1. Letters of inquiry for both arts and education requests will be accepted October 1-25, 2021. Fast Track Arts Grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed monthly.

While you are welcome to browse our website in the meantime, please know that some details of our funding criteria may change as a result of our evaluation process this summer.

Thank you for your good work supporting the arts and K-12 education in Oregon!
