Lakewood Center received $37,320



The Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) announced that 48 local arts organizations have been awarded a total of $1,728,290 for the fiscal year 2012-2013.

These organizations, headquartered in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties, submitted proposals through RACC’s competitive general support grant program, which helps fund the overall mission of qualified arts organizations that are delivering year-round services in the community. Funds are awarded based on an applicant’s ability to demonstrate artistic excellence, fiscal responsibility and broad community support including a stable base of audiences and donors.

“These are stellar organizations that have extraordinary impacts in our community,” Eloise Damrosch, executive director of RACC, said. “We are honored to invest in all of the work they do to inspire and provoke us; to bring our communities together; to support the economy; and to enhance our children’s education.”

Damrosch said this year’s general support total is 5 percent higher than the previous fiscal year, including support for four new organizations — Bag & Baggage Productions, Independent Publishing Resource Center, NW Documentary Arts & Media and PHAME Academy. Funding for RACC general support grants is provided by the city of Portland; Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties; the Oregon Arts Commission; Metro; and Work for Art, RACC’s workplace giving program.

The Lakewood Center for the Arts received $37,320 from RACC for the 2012-13 fiscal year.
