The Orange Regional Arts Foundation (ORAF),
established over 30 years ago...

The key focus is to provide ongoing support for the Arts in the district.
This support ensures that Orange continues to be a shining example of a pro-active
arts-rich community with a diverse cultural life.



We seek to foster the growth and appreciation of the Arts, especially among the younger generation and to develop partnerships within the community to provide greater access to the Arts.    


ORAF is committed to supporting established cultural institutions (Regional Gallery, Civic Theatre, Library, Conservatorium and Museum), arts education and the development of talented artists.



Since ORAF was established in 1984 it has given more than

 $500,000 to the Arts sector. Funds are collected via membership and currently total in the region of $620,000, all of which is invested and remains intact. Grants totalling about $38,000 per annum are drawn from the monies earned on the investment. It is the aim of the Foundation to grow the amount invested to $1,000,000 and to do this membership needs to increase.
