About The Coalition
The Linn County Cultural Coalition is an independent, nonprofit corporation that promotes development of the arts, heritage, and humanities in Linn County through periodic distributions of grant money from the Oregon Cultural Trust, supplemented by local donations. As ambassadors for the Oregon Cultural Trust, we are among 45 countywide and tribal cultural coalitions organized to ensure that Cultural Trust dollars reach every county in Oregon.
Our grants fund a broad range of cultural activities, including arts education, historical preservation, community theater, concerts, and library programs for toddlers and elders. From 2005 to 2020, the Linn County Cultural Coalition has distributed more than $178,000 among 87 Linn County organizations.
The grant process includes submittal of an application, which must include a summary of the project, a marketing proposal, and a project budget. The application form is available here. Applications are due on February 1 for projects to be completed within the same calendar year. For more information, see our Grant Guidelines.
