The purpose of the Josephine County Cultural Coalition (JCCC) is to nurture and promote the arts, humanities and heritage of Josephine County. Through activities and grant awards, JCCC strives to:
- Increase awareness of Josephine County’s unique cultural identity, heritage and resources.
- Help community members understand the benefits of enhancing and preserving our cultural resources.
- Encourage participation of every resident in the arts, humanities and heritage of our county.
These goals reflect the mission of the Oregon Cultural Trust, which was established to support and protect Oregon Culture. Funding of the JCCC is through multiple sources including revenue-sharing of the Oregon Cultural Trust’s collection of directed tax dollars and license plate sales and donations.
