• No other state in the nation offers a 100% tax credit for cultural giving

• No other state has a county-by-county network of cultural plans, specific to the assets and needs of each county

• No other cultural funding plan integrates humanities, arts and heritage in a single, comprehensive program

• No other cultural funding agency treats tribal governments in parity with city, county and state governments

No other state allows its citizens to create the money for cultural funding themselves. When you contribute to the Oregon Cultural Trust through your will, trust or annuity plan, you make sure that the Cultural Trust can give future generations the same quality of Oregon culture that we enjoy today. We’re thrilled to welcome you into the special group of people who have made a commitment to the future of the Oregon Cultural Trust. Your gift is unique…and powerful.

Planned giving is a means by which donors can achieve significant tax benefits both now and at the distribution of their estates, and such planning can make a positive difference for the future of the Oregon Cultural Trust.

One of the simplest ways to plan a gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust is through a bequest. Your financial advisor can make the best planned giving recommendation for your individual situation.
