The Chehalem Cultural Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) funded by earned income of the
Center and donations from our community.


Your tax-deductible contribution directly supports programming that improves the lives of those in
your community and its visitors.
Without the support of individuals like you, who value high-quality arts and in-depth heritage programming,
the Chehalem Cultural Center could never thrive.
Give today and make a difference.

Your donation helps us connect culture lovers to:

  • Art -- through our world-class Parrish Gallery exhibitions.

  • Education -- through a multitude of art, culture, and heritage classes and lectures for adults and children, from the beginner to the professional.

  • Performance -- we host live concerts and cultural demonstrations all year long serving thousands of guests.

  • Community -- through celebrating local talent in our annual Oregon Artists Showcase and local diversity in our free community events like the Newberg Camellia Festival, Dia de Los Muertos, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service and Celebration.

  • Provides scholarships to send kids to Art Camp.

  • Provides free educational programming through regional outreach, cultural celebrations, onsite activities at Artwalk, Old Fashioned Festival, Tunes on Tuesday, Camellia Festival and more!

  • Offers opportunity for dialogue in conversations that truly matter.

  • Nurtures a youth Mariachi band!

And that’s only a sampling. There’s a lot going on at the Chehalem Cultural Center, and it’s all made possible by you.

Your tax-deductible donation is critical to keeping these programs going. Right now, as the Center continues to grow, your support has tremendous impact. Invest in the Chehalem Cultural Center today!
