Match your Friends of Terwilliger charitable donation with a donation to the Oregon Cultural Trust and Double your impact while earning a tax credit for 2020!
You might be surprised to know that Friends of Terwilliger (FOT) has joined other preservation non-profits such as Friends of Columbia Gorge, Friends of Silver Falls State Park, Portland Parks Foundation as an Oregon Cultural Trust partner. If you make a 2020 charitable donation to Friends of Terwilliger you can make an additional matching contribution to the Oregon Cultural Trust (OCT). The contribution to OCT will be returned to you as a 2020 Oregon Income tax credit. In addition, both the FOT and OCT donations qualify as federal charitable deductions should you itemize deductions on your income tax returns.
Created in 2001 by the Oregon Legislature, the Oregon Cultural Trust is an ongoing funding engine for arts and culture across the state. The Oregon Cultural Trust’s mission is “to lead Oregon in cultivating, growing and valuing culture by inspiring Oregonians to invest in a permanent fund that provides annual grants to cultural organizations through competitive Cultural Development Grants.” As a registered partner FOT is now eligible to submit grants to OCT.
