The commission, established to secure, sustain, enhance and promote Oregon’s heritage, is a nine-member, governor-appointed commission that has broad responsibilities as a connector and catalyst for hundreds of organizations and thousands of Oregonians devoted to preserving and interpreting Oregon’s heritage resources. 

​Its programs include the Heritage and Museum Grant Programs, technical assistance for heritage organizations and an annual conference. It also gives annual Heritage Excellence Awards and designates Oregon Heritage Traditions, All-Star Communities and Statewide Celebrations.
