Awarding local arts organizations

September 18, 2013

Last week, the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) announced they have awarded over $1.7 million in grants to 48 local arts organizations!

These 48 organizations were selected through a rigorous application review process that includes a panel of community volunteers and RACC staff. Applicants are evaluated on artistic excellence and fiscal responsibility, and must demonstrate broad community support, including a stable base of audiences and donors.

RACC proudly chooses organizations which make significant and varied contributions to the cultural and economic vitality of the region, including Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties.

RACC is able to provide these grant awards thanks to funding from public and private partners throughout the three counties, as well as Work for Art donations.

Visit RACC’s website to learn about guidelines, application deadlines, and additional contact information for next year’s grant process. You can also learn how to get involved in the Work for Art program.
