Grants

Oregon Humanities awards both annual and responsive grants to organizations and federally recognized tribes in Oregon.

Public Program Grants
Once each year, Oregon Humanities’ volunteer board of directors awards Public Program Grants between $1,000 and $10,000 in support of programs across Oregon that get people together to think and talk about challenging issues and ideas.

Responsive Program Grants
Oregon Humanities offers grants of up to $1,000 on a rolling basis in support of programs responding to timely issues or events. We are committed to awarding grants within four weeks of receiving proposals.
