Grants of up to $10,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations and tribes for a wide variety of humanities activities and programs. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal and are advised that required registrations may take up to 60 days to complete. Public Program Grants support programs that explore challenging questions and strive for just communities. A minimum of 60 percent of awarded funds will go to organizations that meet the qualification of being based in and led by rural communities and/or communities of color.
Oregon Humanities has limited grant funds to award and is committed to funding programming that centers those most impacted by a topic in order to elevate perspectives that have historically been undervalued—particularly programming based in and led by rural communities and/or communities of color. Programs can be in multiple languages or be in a language other than English.
Oregon Humanities funds a wide variety of programs and activities. For example: community dialogues, lectures, online engagements, storytelling formats that center undertold experiences, programming connecting exhibits to current experiences, culturally specific and intercultural events. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, Oregon Humanities encourage applicants to follow the State of Oregon social distancing requirements and to articulate alternate program plans where relevant, such as virtual programming back up plans, rotating participants, or limited in-person participation.
All program subjects and formats must align with the following criteria:
Requested Oregon Humanities funding may support program-related expenses that may include but aren’t limited to supplies and materials, project management salaries, printing and duplication, and ADA access. Additionally, applicants may request an indirect cost rate of up to 10 percent of the total request to Oregon Humanities. These costs may include but aren’t limited to payroll processing and audit fees and office equipment purchases or maintenance not directly related to the project.
