Support the PAC!

PAC CurrentBecause of funding reductions from the State of Oregon and the continuing effects of Measure 5 cuts in the mid 1990s, Clatsop Community College faces challenges which prevents it from funding the continued operating costs of the Performing Arts Center. A coalition of local arts organizations (Partners for the PAC) has joined forces with the college to keep the PAC open for affordable arts and educational events through 2013.

Costs are estimated at $26,000 per year and Partners for the PAC is working to raise funds to sustain the performing arts facility. Funds raised will be used for maintenance and operating costs of the PAC, including publicity and fund raising expenses. Any amount raised over the operating expenses will be deposited in a contingency fund for emergency repairs and improvements to the facility.
