Dear Advocates and Policymakers,

It is with deep gratitude that we celebrate the passing of House Bill 4061, which passed this week during the 2020 short legislative session. The bill will now go to Gov. Kate Brown. Thank you to the Cultural Advocacy Coalition’s dedicated advocates, supporters and friends, who spoke with legislators during our February Advocacy Day and to those who sent letters.

The passing of the bill will support the Oregon’s Cultural Trust, by increasing the amount contributed for cultural license plates by $10 a plate. Funds raised from the sale of these plates are dedicated to marketing and promotion of the cultural trust tax credit. We want Oregonians to be aware of and participate in building the Oregon Cultural Trust Fund, which spreads dollars statewide to support access to creative expression. We encourage contributions to cultural organizations in their communities matched by donations to the trust (which qualify for the tax credit).

Learn more about the plate and view our gallery from Advocacy Day below.

With many thanks and forward momentum!

Thank you,

Dr. Nancy Golden
Board of Directors President
