More than $5 million in funding will be on the table when Oregon Cultural Trust Manager Aili Schreiner joins with colleagues from the Cultural Trust’s Statewide Partners and other funders Feb. 6 through March 8 for “Conversations with Funders and Partners,” a 14-stop state tour.
Attendees will learn about grant programs available from multiple grantmakers and will have the opportunity to discuss their projects and programming. Other statewide programming resources also will be presented.
Representatives from the Statewide Partners – the Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Heritage, Oregon Humanities and the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office – will be joined by counterparts from The Oregon Community Foundation and Portland’s Regional Arts and Culture Council for some of the events.
Organizations encouraged to attend “Conversations with Funders and Partners” include libraries, arts organizations, museums, cultural centers, historical societies, arts alliances, literary groups and heritage organizations. All cultural nonprofit organizations are welcome.
“There are more than 1,450 cultural nonprofits serving Oregonians,” said Schreiner. “We want to make sure they know about the grant funds and significant programming resources that are here to support them.”
Among the grant opportunities discussed will be the Cultural Trust’s 2018 Cultural Development Grants; grant guidelines will be posted on the Trust website Monday, Feb. 5, with an April 13 application deadline.
“Conversations with Funders and Partners” begin Tuesday, Feb. 6, in Northeast Portland and are scheduled through March 8 in regional flights. Registration is not required.
