Fentress Award

The Fentress Award is given annually to honor a local arts organization for their exceptional work and achievement in the arts, and is accompanied by a grant to support the organization’s general operating costs. This honor and its accompanying grant award were established by Carroll D. and Harriet Fentress in 1984, and are overseen by The Oregon Community Foundation’s advisory committees.
