Allocating Cultural Trust funds in the form of grants is the Coalition’s primary function, however, the Coalition strives to nurture and brighten the cultural scene throughout Clackamas County. Members represent a diverse landscape geographically and organizationally including music, education, art, sculpture, dance, writing, heritage, business and celebratory events.
