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.
YCCC Arts & Culture Grants are made possible through the generosity of our many individual donors, the Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Community Foundation and our 2019 Legacy Fund Donors. With your support, we were able to award a record number of grants in 2019 that reflect the diversity and creative spirit of Yamhill County! Thank you donors and congratulations Grant Award Winners. Applications for 2020 grants will be accepted beginning in May, 2019.
