The Rice NW Museum of Rocks & Minerals is the proud recipient of a grant recently awardedÂ by the Cultural Coalition of Washington County. The funds willÂ promote community access with document translations. Creating Spanish-language documents such as self-guided museum tour pamphlets will enhanceÂ visitor accessibility within our diverse community.
The Cultural Coalition is the re-granting board of the Oregon Cultural Trust in Washington County. Monies donated to the Cultural Trust come back to Washington County and are distributed as grants to Cultural non-profits per the Washington County Cultural Plan. These grants help promote the cultural identity, quality of life and economic vitality of Washington County and its arts, heritage and humanities organizations.
