RACC Seeks Grants Community Panel Reviewers | Arts3C (Fall 2023 Cycle)

Grants · Remote

The Regional Arts Culture Council (RACC) has one mission – to enrich our communities through arts and culture. We believe that the arts have the power to change hearts and minds, and to inspire social change. We also believe that arts and culture are key elements in creating desirable places to live, learn, work, and visit.

RACC’s Arts3C Grant is an opportunity for artists, arts organizations, and arts-related businesses to apply for funding to fulfill a variety of needs, from creative project production to individual professional development to organizational administrative support. Applicants from all artistic disciplines are welcome to submit proposals, and the grant is offered twice annually. Awarded grantees are selected through a competitive process of proposal review by numerous panels of artists, arts professionals, and community representatives. The work performed by the Community Panel Reviewers directly empowers people from all walks of life to access a wide range of artistic and cultural experiences. For more information about Art3C and recent cycles of the grant, please visit https://racc.org/grants/arts3c/.

RACC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and strives to cultivate Equity in all of our programs. Prejudice and privilege have created barriers that RACC must dismantle, systematically and strategically, until everyone in our community has equitable access to arts and culture. We strive to put together panels comprised of members with a diversity of lived experiences, so that our review cohort reflects the communities it serves. If you are interested in committing your insight, expertise, and time to this process, we look forward to hearing from you.

RACC completes our 2023 Fiscal Year with record number of grant awards investing in our creative community

The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) is pleased to announce the distribution of substantial funds made between July 2022 and June 2023, totaling over $7.8 million, to support individual artists, arts organizations, and many art projects across the tri-county region. Grant funding is made possible by public investment and partnership from the City of Portland, Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties, Metro, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). RACC grants are awarded through competitive programs, primarily General Operating Support (GOS) and the new Arts3C Grant, that engage with Community Reviewers in the decision making process. These evolving grant programs are a testament to RACC’s commitment to foster a vibrant arts community and ensure equitable access to artistic experiences for all residents

Our ability to strategically ensure that our community continues to be centered as we navigate the changes brought about by the recent pandemic and social justice and equity initiatives is informed by our community, who holds us accountable, and who can see and experience the returns on their investment in RACC. These funds are from community, for community. We are grateful stewards and leaders ensuring an equitable process and program. Our private/public partnerships with our local, state, and national governments are the bedrock for these opportunities. Our success relies on thoughtful collaboration and transparency in our processes,” Carol Tatch, RACC’s Chief for External Operations.

This past years’ increased number of applicants reflect the growth in creative activity and the expanding needs of art producers. Over 60 artists, arts administrators, and arts board members reviewed applications, participated on panels, and contributed to the work in making the record number of grant awards. Four arts organizations, Alberta Abbey Foundation, Caldera, Lan Su Chinese Garden, and Resonance Vocal Ensemble, were accepted into the General Operating Support program partnership, bringing the total number of groups that receive ongoing unrestricted grant support up to 70. A list of all GOS organizations and their award amounts is available online at racc.org/ grants/grant-awards/.

Most notably, in two cycles of Arts3C grants in the last year, RACC received a total of 1100 eligible applications and awarded $1,735,000 to 452 unique recipients. RACC received 856 eligible applications and awarded $1,143,000 to 385 unique recipients in the comparable program in FY22. This ongoing growth in arts activities and interest in public grant support follows a trend that RACC has been tracking since before the pandemic.

This last year, RACC was able to make a special allocation of $2.4 million to our GOS and Capacity Building arts organizations, made possible thanks to Portland residents that voted for and paid into the Arts Education & Access Income Tax Fund (AEAF), also known as the Arts Education Tax. RACC has had a Board-approved reserve fund since 2018 when they received an unexpected allocation of arts tax revenues collected by the city. Some of those funds were distributed to partner arts organizations in a special allocation that same year and another distribution was made three years ago during the pandemic. The funds distributed through the AEAF will enhance the capacity of diverse art organizations–from visual arts institutions to performing arts organizations and cultural event programmers–to sustain their programs, outreach initiatives, and administrative functions. By providing general operating support, RACC’s distribution of its portion of AEAF funds strengthens the foundational pillars of these organizations and supports their continued vitality and the community’s access to meaningful engagement with the arts.

RACC launched the Fall cycle of Arts3C Grants on July 26, 2023, and will be offering the opportunity to apply to be a Community Reviewer in early August. While the number of applicants grows and the processes remain competitive, RACC team members continue to invest in artists and applicants through time, information, support, and learning opportunities, not to mention grant funding. RACC’s Grants team is available to answer questions and support applicants in all the grant programs.

RACC “How To…” Administration Videos

RACC has created a series of short videos to walk grant recipients through each step of the grant administration process.

how toYou can check out RACC YouTube “How To” Series for videos to support your work in the RACC Opportunity Portal and general grant administration, including How To…:

  • Complete your RACC Grant Agreement
  • Fill out your W-9 Form
  • Help RACC share your work on Social Media
  • and more!

When promoting and presenting your event or sharing your artistic activities, it is important to acknowledge RACC’s support. This allows us to share your projects on our platforms and helps our communities see the impact of public funding for the arts.

Logo Usage

On printed and web materials, we ask that grantees include the RACC logo. Please defer to using the primary and secondary logos whenever possible. The alternate logo that includes our acronym is only to be used in situations where the primary and secondary RACC logos have become illegible due to small size. This logo is to be accompanied by the organization’s full name (Regional Arts & Culture Council) in a caption or in close proximity where it makes most sense.

Learn more about usage and download the RACC logo in a variety of formats at racc.org/logos.

On printed and web materials, grantees must include the RACC logo that contains the organization’s full name (Regional Arts & Culture Council). The file to be used is available to download here, as well as information about usage and technical formatting tips. If you find yourself in a situation where no sponsor logos can be included, a written notice of RACC support must be acknowledged as follows: “[Name of project or activity] is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.” In the rare case written acknowledgment is impossible, a verbal acknowledgement must be made at your event. Last, grantees are encouraged but not required to acknowledge RACC support when speaking with the press.

Social Media

RACC’s Communications team is eager to support and uplift our grantees via our social media channels. We prioritize stories from underrepresented communities including Asian, Black, Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander, LGBTQ, and artists from communities with barriers to traditional support systems. To ensure we can find your content, we offer the following suggestions:

Instagram | @regionalarts

In a post on your Instagram feed, mention us in the description and tag us in the photo @regionalarts. On your Instagram story, tag us @regionalarts so we can re-share it on our own story.

Facebook | @Regional Arts & Culture Council

Tag @Regional Arts and Culture Council in your post. Please do not request for RACC to cohost your event on Facebook.

Twitter | @R_A_C_C

Mention @R_A_C_C on your post, so we can retweet.

We strive to connect with and follow the accounts of our artistic community on social media. If you are not present on social media, but would still like us to share information about a RACC supported project, please reach out to our team (comms@racc.org) about this or any other social media questions or suggestions you might have.

RACC Sponsored Events Calendar

Located in the lower right-hand corner on the main page of racc.org is the “RACC Sponsored Events Calendar”, powered by Travel Portland. If you would like your event to appear on the calendar, please visit https://www.travelportland.com/events/ to “Submit an Event”. Be sure to mark your event as “RACC Funded.” Once your event is verified, it will automatically appear on RACC’s calendar on the main page.

Track your expenses and document your activity:

You will need this information later for your Final Report! More information about reporting requirements is provided in Step #4.

Consider the ADA accessibility needs for your project:

Projects that receive public support must be fully ADA accessible and inclusive to every individual. The assurance of equal opportunity for all people to participate in the arts is fundamental. Check out these resources and others to build Access into your programming

Notify Grants team so we can see your work!

You are encouraged to keep the RACC Grants team apprised of your project dates and invite us to attend your event! You can reach us at grants@racc.org.

Thank your Elected Officials for their Public Support:

RACC grants are made possible by funds from the City of Portland, Multnomah County, Washington County, Clackamas County, and Metro. Please consider thanking your Elected Officials for their public support, and letting them know about your work.

Once your funded activity is complete, log back into the RACC Opportunity Portal to fill out your Final Report. You will access the Final Report tasks by clicking the green “Start” button for the awarded grant with the Status of “Final Report”.

The Final Report requires the following components:

  1. Final Report Form. This form includes narrative questions about the activity, a budget section, and questions about the number of people involved/impacted.
  2. Materials that show use of the RACC logo or other acknowledgement of RACC’s support. This could be web links, brochures, programs, press releases, news clippings, screen shots, etc.
  3. Evidence of completed activity. This could be photos, web links, receipts, or other evidence that your RACC funded opportunity was completed successfully.

Please keep in mind that compliance with final reporting requirements in previous grant cycles will be considered when the applicant's future grant applications are in review.

Once you have completed all of these components, be sure to click the green button labeled "Submit”. You will receive a confirmation email when your Final Report has been successfully submitted.

A member of the RACC grants team will review your Final Report and be in touch if we have any questions or need additional documentation. When your final report is approved, you will receive a confirmation email.
