The Cultural Coalition of Washington County (CCWC) is the re-granting board of the Oregon Cultural Trust in Washington County. Monies donated to the Cultural Trust come back to Washington County and are distributed as grants to cultural non-profits per the Washington County Cultural Plan. The CCWC serves as an advisory body to the Board of County Commissioners to promote the cultural identity, quality of life and economic vitality of Washington County and its arts, heritage and humanities organizations.
The CCWC was appointed in February 2005 by the Washington County Board of Commissioners to administer and distribute funds from the Oregon Cultural Trust to support locally-based arts, heritage and humanities projects. The Oregon Cultural Trust receives its funding from donors who receive a generous state tax credit for giving as long as their contribution to the Trust is matched by equal or greater charitable gifts to any number of Oregon’s 1,450 cultural non-profits. Washington County is home to over 100 heritage, humanities and arts nonprofits.
