About Oregon Cultural Trust: TCCC is the steward of funds received from the Oregon Cultural Trust for distribution in Tillamook County. Each year one-third of Trust monies in the fund go to 45 Oregon County Cultural Coalitions. Coalitions, in turn, grant those funds to local cultural programs or projects in their counties. To learn more about the Trust, go to www.culturaltrust.org. “When Cultural Trust funding goes up, we all benefit,” said Brian Rogers, Oregon Cultural Trust’s executive director. “Every dollar strengthens not just our cultural economy, but the quality of life that makes Oregon so special.”
