Oregon Arts and Culture Recovery Program

The Oregon Arts and Culture Recovery Program will provide flexible resources from a cohort of participating funders to support the arts and culture community who have been adversely impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19.

Generous community partners are supporting this program. Partners supporting this effort currently include: The Collins Foundation, James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, Oregon Community Foundation, Regional Arts & Culture Council, Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Arts Commission, The Reser Family Foundation and Schnitzer CARE Foundation / Jordan Schnitzer.
