Salem Awards Grant Funding to Local Non-Profits Impacted by COVID-19 - 09/14/20

Salem, Ore. — The City of Salem recently awarded seven cultural and heritage focused non-profit organizations a combined $25,000 in assistance for operational hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic. These awards were funded by the City Council and were distributed in grants of up to $5,000 per organization.  

Grant funding was awarded to Theatre 33, Straub Outdoors, Salem Art Association, Gilbert House Children’s Museum, Verona Studio, Pentacle Theatre, and Enlightened Theatrics. To be eligible the organizations were required to have a physical presence within Salem city limits, be open to the public and have experienced a mandatory change-in-service, or closure, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City continues to support local businesses who have been affected by COVID-19 and expects to launch two additional grant programs to benefit Salem small businesses and eligible non-profit organizations in early fall.
