making a contribution to EMGO with the Oregon Cultural Trust
Oregon Cultural Trust is
an innovative, statewide private-public program raising significant new
funds to support and protect Oregon's arts, humanities and heritage. In
addition to the creation of a long-term, protected endowment, funds are
distributed annually through three multi-faceted, wide-ranging grant
programs. Donors to the Trust are eligible for a 100% Oregon income tax
credit for contributions of up to $500 for individuals, $1,000 for
couples filing jointly and $2,500 for corporations. To motivate
Oregonians to increase direct giving to cultural groups, Trust donors
must also make matching gifts to one or more of 1,200 cultural
nonprofits in order to qualify for the credit. Twelve thousand (12,000)
donors have contributed over $8 million to the Cultural Trust since
Oregon's cultural tax credit took effect in December 2002. More
