Oregon State Capitol Launches Capitol History Gateway Exhibit Sponsorship Program

Funded by the Oregon State Capitol Foundation – Cultural and Heritage Museums and Organizations Encouraged to Apply

The Oregon State Capitol has long displayed exhibits from entities throughout the state. In the last five years, through the Capitol History Gateway (CHG) Program, the exhibits have become more focused on telling stories specific to Oregon history and many have had ties interwoven with democracy or government. This year, the Oregon State Capitol Foundation (OSCF), who helps fund the CHG, has offered to support cultural and heritage museums wanting to tell their stories with an exhibit at the Capitol.

The Capitol’s Visitor Services Department produces the CHG program, including events and exhibits, and will be administrating this funding opportunity. For this first sponsorship cycle, the OSCF will provide funding up to $5,000 per museum or organization, for up to five entities, for a maximum sponsorship of $25,000.

Details about the funding opportunity and an application can be found at https://bit.ly/3E0N0BO. The deadline to apply for funding is 11:59 p.m. January 31, 2022.

            For more information, call Stacy Nalley, Public Outreach Coordinator at the Oregon State Capitol Visitor Services Department, 503-986-1392.
