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:
Endowment, Inc. Donors
Becoming A Sponsor
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.

support for our programs, but they are also a tangible way the
community lets us know that we are serving their needs.
Becoming an ArtCentric Endowment, Inc. Member:
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

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.
