Our 2020 Fall Fundraiser will be virtual, free, and fun!
Join us on October 22 from 6:30-7:30pm PT to see live performances from local artists! Tuning in is easy. Sign in to Instagram on your phone, visit Tualatin Valley Creates’ profile page (@tualatinvalleycreates), and click on our profile picture which will say “live” during the event.
Hear Tico Gonzalez play original Cuban music, see a class at Hula Hālau ‘Ohana Holo’oko’a dance, and listen to Airlie Press poet Jennifer Perrine read her work. You can also now purchase tickets for our amazing raffle prizes! They’re full of great food, crafts and gifts from regional businesses. Choose from themed baskets including arts, date night, tea-lover’s, home gardening, and more. Don’t miss your chance to win!
Money raised through raffle ticket sales directly impact Tualatin Valley Creates’ ability to offer innovative programs across the region. Along with grants, these unrestricted funds cover the costs of professional development guest speakers, online portals and platforms like the calendar plugin ($1,200/yr), email marketing and social media programs ($1,020/yr), and to support the Arts & Culture Leadership Incubator graduate stipends ($500/Participant) just to name a few. It takes this combined revenue to keep our programming low- and no-cost for our regional community.
Leading up to the event, you can hear testimonies from our community partners at noon on Instagram Live on select days from October 8 – October 22 to learn why they value and support TVC’s work.

Tualatin Valley Creates, we’ve rapidly adapted our programming to help our creative community in this time of crisis.
TVC has always offered professional development programming for artists and arts administrators. And now, in order to make sure our creative ecosystem can land on its feet, we’ve added free webinars for navigating the impacts of COVID-19, virtual industry networking events, curated information on emergency funding sources for artists, and more.
All of this is in addition to our regular services, including hosting the region’s leading arts and culture events calendar and connecting you to the latest opportunities to advance your career. We create an essential bridge for residents to Washington County’s vibrant arts, culture, heritage and humanities scenes.
Our ability to come together to help each other is more important right now than ever. TVC is dedicated to Washington County’s creative future. Help us build the resiliency we need to carry us through. When you donate to TVC, you help provide artists the tools they need to enrich life for the rest of us. We hope you will take this opportunity to invest in your community.
