Each year, YCCC receives an allotment of Oregon Cultural Trust money to fund cultural activities in Yamhill County.  We have received additional funds from the Oregon Community Foundation to help finance local projects.  Through a competitive application process, YCCC awards grants of up to $2500.   Since 2004, YCCC has distributed over $150,000 to local cultural activities.
