Fundraising

FundGraphWe need your financial support to close the $2 million funding gap that exists between available resources and the current $16 million Phase 1 Eastern Oregon Trade & Event Center (EOTEC) completion estimate. 

The Phase 1 EOTEC project is based on modest project needs identified by the EOTEC Authority Board and community stakeholder input.

The City of Hermiston, Umatilla County, the Umatilla County Fair and the Farm-City Pro Rodeo have partnered to sponsor the development of the Eastern Oregon Trade and Event Center (EOTEC) on approximately 90 acres of ground just south of the Hermiston Airport. EOTEC will begin hosting the Umatilla County Fair and Farm-City Pro Rodeo in August 2017 and will provide a top-notch venue for attracting many other new events to the area throughout the year. The site includes an Exhibitor and Event Center, Livestock Barns, 6,000 seat Rodeo Arena, a large common area and parking.

The community has established a goal to raise $16.0 million for the design and construction of EOTEC. $11.8 million was raised during the initial phase of the project from the Oregon State Lottery, sale of the existing property, the Umatilla County Fair, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the City of Hermiston.

Phase II fundraising in 2015 included the City of Hermiston and Umatilla County investing an additional $600,000 each, and the Umatilla County Hotel owners have agreed to an additional per room assessment to generate $1,000,000.

Sponsorship Timeline

Sponsorships will be solicited from December 16 through March 1, 2016. Funds must be received and contribution contracts signed (if applicable) by April 1.
