BCCC Grant Application Form

Benton County Cultural Coalition grants are awarded to registered 501(c)(3) art/heritage/cultural organizations located in Benton County, Oregon. If you are not a registered 501(c)(3) you must declare a 501(c)(3) organization as your fiscal non-profit sponsor. Be advised that most organizations charge a small percentage to serve as your fiscal sponsor. This fee should be factored into your project budget and the amount of your grant request.

All activities and/or art installations must take place on property that belongs to a Benton County public or 501(c)(3) organization.

The Benton County Cultural Coalition seeks to identify art, humanities, and heritage projects that support an active, accessible cultural life throughout Benton County.

We look for a well formulated plan of action for implementation.

We appreciate innovative grants that either reach the greatest number of Benton County residents or those that will engage a smaller segment of the population, providing outreach and engagement in areas where increased access to programming would be especially beneficial.
