What if every world leader learned how to tap dance?

What if lawyers were required to submit their testimony in haiku?

What if DMVs doubled as dinner theaters?

What if doctors prescribed singing lessons?

What if parking violations came in paint-by-number?

The Arts Impact Fund is a simple way to give back to nonprofit arts and culture groups that strengthen our communities in the Portland tri-county region. Your support amplifies our grantmaking to organizations at the forefront of innovative artistic programming, financial health and responsibility, and equitable participation in arts and culture.

Starting Conversations

One nonprofit is building a community of support for people who live outside, on the streets, or in transitional housing through a shared love of literature.

Boosting Our Economy

The nonprofit arts and culture sector in the Portland metro region generates $330 million in annual economic activity and supports 11,505 full-time jobs. Read more.

Elevating Under-represented Voices

Women playwrights and writers of color have become one theater’s central focus for three full seasons, addressing a long-standing inequity within the industry.

Learning through Creative Expression

Students get a lesson in science and gain a deeper understanding of the forces within our solar system through dance.
