Allied Arts was formed in 1971 as a way for the community to support and engage with central Oklahoma’s cultural groups.
A single donation helps ensure that 40+ local arts organizations have the tools and resources they need to remain strong and offer quality programming to the public. Together these agencies touch the lives of more than one million people annually, including more than 545,000 arts experiences for school-age children in the last year.
Since our founding, we have granted more than $63 million on behalf of arts organizations.
But we do more than raise money for the arts. We promote arts education, advocate on their behalf, and raise awareness of the impact of the arts in our schools, communities and state. We also provide fundraising, technical and organizational management support to help keep our member agencies in strong financial and operating standing.
Donate today. With you, art can change a life.
