The Clackamas County Cultural Coalition is one of 45 county and tribal-based local networks in Oregon whose primary function is to re-grant an annual appropriation from The Oregon Cultural Trust (culturaltrust.org). The trust was established in 2002 to support arts, heritage, and humanities across Oregon, and is currently the only funding mechanism of this kind in the United States.
The goal/mission of our Coalition is to grow the cultural assets of Clackamas County. The Coalition is led by local members whose primary function is to represent local arts, heritage, and humanities interests and to distribute funds according to the priorities identified in this cultural plan. The Coalition receives between $20–50,000 a year from the Trust.
The intention is to see this amount grow as contributions to the Trust increase. The Clackamas County Arts Alliance provides administrative staff support to the Coalition.
