The Arts Commission’s Recognition Grants will award $1,000 to exemplary arts organizations that have a record of excellence in programming, service and organizational capacity. The awards support activities that advance an organization’s marketing and outreach efforts, raising their profile in the community.
The Commission has finite resources. Not all eligible applicants will receive funding.
Arts Recognition Grants are a visible indication of Commission support and assist in raising an organization’s profile and in leveraging other funds and resources. These awards are not for operating support.
The Commission has established the following priorities for funding applications in the Arts Recognition category:
- Applicants with annual cash budgets of less than $100,000;
- Applicants that have never received an Arts Recognition Grant; and
- Applications from geographically underserved areas of Oregon.
