Your Support
 

     Non-profit organizations depend on many forms of support to make their dreams a reality and to better serve their communities. From our very beginnings, the Corvallis Arts Center/Linn-Benton Arts Council has been graced by many forms of generous support. Here are just a few of the ways you can partner with us:

  • Sponsors
  • ArtCentric Members
  • ArtCentric Endowment, Inc. Donors
  • Grants
By Becoming A Sponsor
     Sponsorships are most often a corporate donation, though they can be made by individuals as well. Some sponsorships are given to support a specific project or program, like an exhibition, artist residency, or the printing of a brochure. Other sponsorships are given for general operating expenses in support of a nonprofit's overall goals and programs. The Corvallis Arts Center/Linn-Benton Arts Council has been fortunate to develop creative collaborations with its sponsors and is grateful for their ongoing support. We strive to develop diverse ways to recognize our sponsors. Standard forms of recognition include inclusion on our web site, a sponsor listing in Artspirit, and sponsor discounts in our gallery exhibitions and ArtCentric ArtShop. However, additional forms of recognition are specific to the particular project they have chosen to support, and may include such things as print recognition on a brochure or recognition at an event.

By Becoming a Member of the Corvallis Arts Center/Linn-Benton Arts Council:
    Memberships form the heart of our organization. They provide important fiscal support for our programs, but they are also a tangible way the community lets us know that we are serving their needs.
 
By Becoming an ArtCentric Endowment, Inc. Member:

     The ArtCentric Endowment, Inc. had its beginnings in 1989, through a generous donation of $29,000 from Ruby Scoblick. Ruby believed deeply in the arts and the contribution they make to developing a sense of community. Over the years others have joined with her vision, growing the general endowment through their pledges. In 1991 beloved community leaders, Jim and Ruth Howland, established a separate Howland Fund to support the purchase of Corvallis public art and to support artist awards for our annual Howland Community Open exhibition. In 2002, a non-profit no longer in existence made a generous donation of $10,000 to establish a restricted fund for arts education. Both donors welcome additional contributions for the growth of these funds.
       The ArtCentric Endowment, Inc. is very fortunate to have this Endowment and takes seriously its responsibility to manage these funds for the long-term benefit of our community. We follow financial policies that will fit the needs and interests of our community from today well into the future. The arts are a living legacy in our community.
     Donations to the ArtCentric Endowment, Inc. can be made via many methods including direct contributions, stock gifts, or bequests. If you would like a copy of our investment policy or other information about the endowment, please contact the Executive Director, Victoria Fridley, at (541)754-1551 or (victoria@artcentric.org).

 
Grants

    Grants come from government support, at the national, state, and local level, and through foundations. The Oregon Arts Commission has made possible many of our programs and services through two major grant programs, one which funds the Arts-in-Education program for Linn and Benton counties, and the other which helps fund Artspirit, our arts publication, the Linn-Benton Arts Directory, and workshop opportunities for artists and teachers. The Oregon Arts Commission is funded in part from the National Endowment for the Arts.

      Originally funded by the Oregon Arts Commision, our Arts Reaching Youth At Risk Program has been funded for the last three years by the generous support of the Benton County Commission on Children and Families.
     In 2002 and again in 2003 the Corvallis Kiwanas Foundations gave a donation to support our AIE program
     In the Fall of 2002, we were awarded a prestigous national grant from the Johnson & Johnson Foundation and the Society of Arts and Health Care to fund a mural and tile project at Good Samaritan Hospital as part of our ArtsCare program.
