Small Arts and Culture Grants

Supporting Community-Driven Arts and Culture Organizations

A 2014 survey revealed that of the 1,884 registered arts and culture nonprofits in Oregon, 61% have budgets under $100,000. Although these organizations are central to the vitality of Oregon’s communities, they are often not eligible or competitive for traditional grant programs. In response to this need, OCF announces the sixth year of the Small Arts & Culture grants program. From 2019 to 2021, OCF will invest $350,000 annually to support small community-driven arts and culture organizations.


In 2019, 115 Small Arts and Culture grants were awarded throughout Oregon, totaling $350,000. View lists of past grantees:
