Today the Board of Directors for Keeping the Beat, an Oregon-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that supports arts programs in Oregon, announced that they agreed to be the fiscal sponsor of the new Creative Conference in Portland.
The Creative Conference planning committee and KTB leadership see strong alignment around supporting and celebrating creativity and the arts in a variety of forms.
From the beginning of the process to develop a new Creative Conference I thought it was important to structure it as a nonprofit community-based project like it was before. We accomplished this goal with today’s vote by the KTB Board. This milestone in the planning process means the Creative Conference can move forward with accepting tax-exempt donations and sponsorships to help manifest the event.
