I wanted to let folks know that there is something out there that should be of interest to all artists and art patrons that not only makes sense but in this case is a true "no brainier".
Its the Oregon Cultural Trust Oregon Tax Credit Program....
Typically when we make contributions to "cultural" non-profit organizations we are able to deduct those contributions from our federal and state taxes. This is always nice but there is a way to contribute a LOT more and won't cost you a penny!
The Oregon Cultural Trust has a program that allows you to "match" your contributions to your favorite cultural non-profit organization(s) to the Oregon Cultural Trust. The Oregon Cultural Trust has a list of 1,200 Oregon cultural non-profit organizations which are qualified for this program and Artists in Action is one of those organizations.
You can read all about this program HERE.
I encourage you all to take a look at this program and seriously consider sending a matching contribution to the Oregon Cultural Trust.
