The mission of Allied Arts is "Enriching Our Communities Through Advancement of the Arts."

The vision of Allied Arts is “To Be the Driving Force of the Arts in Oklahoma’s Dynamic Growth.”

Our purpose statement is “to broaden support for the arts by raising financial support for the arts and related organizations, encouraging participation and attendance, advocating arts education, and promoting excellence in the arts and arts management.”
In 1971, the Chamber of Commerce organized the efforts of several corporate, community and cultural leaders to form the Oklahoma City Cultural Development Foundation. Two years later, the name was changed to Allied Arts Foundation.  For the past 46 years, Allied Arts has acted as a leading champion, voice, funder and advocate for central Oklahoma's cultural community.  Since its inception, Allied Arts has mobilized more than $63 million for the cultural community.
Arts organizations that are accepted to receive major funding by Allied Arts are called "member agencies."  These agencies undergo a rigorous application process to become an Allied Arts member agency.  Upon acceptance as a member agency, these organizations are screened on an annual basis on financial standing, quality of programming, community outreach and community collaborations - reassuring Allied Arts donors that their investment is properly stewarded.
Originally there were four member agencies that made up the Allied Arts umbrella. Today, Allied Arts serves twenty-six member arts and cultural organizations, as well as non-member organizations.  On average, Allied Arts provides critical funding to 40 arts groups every year.  The benefits of Allied Arts can be seen in an arts calendar brimming with performances, events, exhibitions, and educational opportunities. 

  • The 2017 campaign raised $3,114,965, an increase of 4.7% from the previous year AND the highest growth percentage since 2012.
  • Employee giving generated $604,081, an increase of 15.9% from 2016. In 2017, 870 Step-Up gifts were delivered, a 39.2% increase from the previous year. Step-Up participants have doubled since 2015 when the Step-Up gift was changed to an art-related incentive item rather than an Allied Arts-branded item.
  • Allied Arts’ overall donor retention rate from 2016 to 2017 was at 61.7%. The national average according to the Fundraising Effectiveness Project is at 45%.
  • As a result of entering and winning the inaugural, national Brackets for Good tournament, Allied Arts won the $100,000 championship prize and received donations totaling more than $79,000 from donors who were new, lapsed or increased their giving. Furthermore, Allied Arts benefited from $444,000 in free media coverage. In addition, Allied Arts received national recognition as a top fundraising organization, put Oklahoma on a positive spotlight and brought the various sectors of the community together.

  • Ensure every Oklahoma child has opportunities to explore his/her creativity and participate in arts experiences
  • Further facilitate the growth and sustainability of the local cultural community
  • Ensure arts education remains in classrooms, afterschool programs and community centers
  • Become a stronger advocate for the arts
  • Broaden the base of support for the arts, increasing the impact of the arts on personal lives, families and the community
  • Further build the Allied Arts endowment to ensure 100% of campaign funds are granted to arts and cultural organizations
Art is important for its own sake, of course, but its impact on economic development, education and quality of life often go unnoticed. Allied Arts is committed to telling the story of the arts and ensuring they have the resources needed to become sustainable, to inspire our children through arts education, to uplift our communities and to create a dynamic atmosphere that attracts creative individuals and new businesses to address the complex needs of the 21st century.   
With 44 art teacher positions eliminated in Oklahoma City alone last year, Allied Arts funding for youth arts education is critical to ensure schoolchildren continue to receive the proven benefits of long-term arts exposure, including creative problem-solving skills, improved school attendance, higher grades and standardized test scores, and enhanced communication skills. Because schools are losing art teachers and programs, they are calling on nonprofit arts groups now more than ever to serve their students. As a result, Allied Arts has experienced a record number of requests for funding to bring the arts to youth. In the last two years, Allied Arts has made funding cuts totaling more than $128,000 in its educational outreach grant program.  
CEO/Executive Director Statement
Thank you for your interest in Allied Arts.  I am proud to work on behalf of the arts and the indelible impact they have on our community. 
You may be thinking...."Why the arts?"  Because the arts matter…to our economy, to our community and to our children. Here’s why and how:
Art matters to our economy.  The arts create jobs, attract new residents and boost our tourism industry.  They also help retain our stellar college graduates, and attract meeting and convention business to the city. Annually, the economic impact of the arts totals more than $872 million statewide.

Art matters to our communities.  Strong arts programs create a better quality of life for our families and neighbors.  The arts revitalize neighborhoods and transform communities into thriving cultural hubs. Remember downtown Oklahoma City without the Museum of Art?  Think about the recent transformation of the Plaza District - the change agent was Lyric Theatre's rehabilitation of the historic Plaza Theatre.  And what about the recent boom found on historic Film Row - deadCenter Film serves as the anchor to that area that is alive again.
Art matters to our children.  Children who participate in regular art activities are more likely to hold school leadership positions, volunteer in the community and have regular school attendance.  With art programs in decline in public schools, Allied Arts helps fill the arts education gap to help ensure the arts are accessible to all students.
I encourage you to learn more about Allied Arts and the ways in which the arts are improving our great state's quality of life.  Please visit our website, social media pages and call our office to become engaged with Allied Arts.  I welcome the opportunity to meet personally with you!

Oklahoma - Statewide
Allied Arts primarily serves the arts community in central Oklahoma; however,Allied Arts funding touches the entire state.  Although Allied Arts agencies are headquartered in Oklahoma City, Norman and Shawnee, their programming reaches all corners of the state - from Ardmore to Weatherford.
Service Categories
Secondary Organizational Category Education/Educational Services
Tertiary Organizational Category Community Improvement, Capacity Building/Alliances & Advocacy
Every year, Allied Arts coordinates a community-wide fundraising drive to benefit central Oklahoma's cultural landscape. Companies of all sizes and industries as well as individuals from all walks of life come together to enhance quality of life in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas through an investment in arts and culture. For the 2018 fundraising effort, the Allied Arts board of directors has approved an organizational budget with campaign revenue projected at $3,125,000. In 2017, the campaign raised $3,114,965.

Campaign funds are directed to meet the operating, programmatic, education and outreach needs of leading arts organizations headquartered in central Oklahoma, with most grantees having a statewide impact. On an annual basis, Allied Arts-funded programs impact the lives of approximately one million people including the hospitalized, elderly, veterans, at-risk and low-income schoolchildren, and families. Just last year, Allied Arts member agencies provided more than 545,000 arts experiences for Oklahoma youth in the classroom as well as at afterschool sites, libraries, community centers and agency facilities. With Allied Arts funding, cultural nonprofits are in a position to offer community programming at no cost or very affordable rates to ensure heightened access to the arts for more people.
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Adults Elderly and/or Disabled
Allied Arts provides critical, annual funding to its 26 member agencies.  Allocated annually through the major grants process, Allied Arts contributes anywhere from 5-20% of its 26 member agencies' operating budgets. 
Together, Allied Arts agencies touch the lives of 1 million people each year, including the provision of more than 545,000 arts experiences to school-aged children.
As a leading champion, advocate and funder of the arts, Allied Arts ensures that our member agencies have the resources and tools to positively impact our community through enhanced quality of life, arts education and access to the arts for all.  Campaign funds make it possible, for example, for performing arts groups to visit libraries and other community centers in underserved segments of the state.  Allied Arts funds also enable arts organizations to provide arts programming for all age groups – from toddlers during family art days to senior citizens during visits to assisted living facilities.  In addition, Allied Arts funds help ensure free and low-cost events and programming so that more members of our community have the opportunity to experience the arts.

Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.

As part of the annual allocations process, two sets of volunteer committees convene in April and May to ensure that Allied Arts donor contributions are invested in healthy, sustainable and relevant cultural nonprofit organizations.

After independent review of agency budgets, 990s, audits and other documentation, the allocations finance committee convenes for a full day to assess the financial well-being of Allied Arts member agencies. A few weeks later, the allocations committee listens to presentations delivered by member agency staff and board leadership over a three-day period. This committee’s focus is on community impact and caliber of program delivery.

Based on presentations, submitted applications and a formula using contributed income as its basis, the allocations committee recommends allocations amount to be approved by the Allied Arts executive committee and board of directors. 
Description The Allied Arts Educational Outreach Program facilitates the creation of new projects and helps expand the reach of existing projects to ensure that Oklahoma children, particularly underserved, at-risk youth, have access to the arts.  On an annual basis, the program impacts the lives of approximately 100,000 children - ranging from kindergarten student to high school senior.

Open to all qualified cultural nonprofit organizations, the program provides critical funding to inspire, nurture and educate youth through the arts.  Funds are used to offset fees for artists associated with implementation of arts educational activities, travel to schools and to art sites, art supplies for use in afterschool programs and art camps, production of educational materials for use in the classroom, and scholarships for students of low-income families to participate in art camps and programs out of school.  The majority of the children reached through the program would not have the opportunity otherwise to participate in the arts - either because their schools lack arts education or their families cannot afford the cost of extracurricular arts activities.

The program makes a variety of art forms accessible including African dance, ballet, barbershop harmony, choral music, classical, contemporary and musical theatre.

Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
The ultimate goal of the Educational Outreach Program is to expose Oklahoma children to the power and beauty of the arts, particularly those whose families or schools lack the resources to provide arts opportunities to them.  The arts will enrich their educational experiences, providing inspiration and creativity that cannot come from a textbook.  We also hope to build the next generation of art supporters and patrons.

Progress reports are required upon completion to determine the numbers of children served, as well as the impact of the specific project.      
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.

Giving children arts experiences is about more than developing the next generation of artists – although that is important too. It’s more about building creative problem-solving skills, creating mentoring relationships between art instructor and student, learning how to work with others and instilling confidence.

A mother of an Oklahoma Youth Orchestras student shared her son’s story. He suffered from ADHD, and nothing was helping with his condition. They tried prescription medication, sports and therapy. The longer it took them to find a solution, the more his behavior and grades worsened. Until he found music. As soon as he put an instrument in his hands, his mother knew they had found what they were looking for. He was no longer the student that teachers didn’t want in their classrooms. He also became happier which in turn improved relationships with his peers and family.

Description Allied Arts serves member and non-member arts organizations through the capacity-building grant program which provides resources for capacity-building purposes such as first-time audits, board development and management, and professional training opportunities.

Through the capacity-building grant program, strategic plans have been formulated, staff members have received critical professional development services, board members have undergone volunteer and fundraising training, and financial audits have been conducted.

As part of its annual monitoring process, Allied Arts has set minimum criteria for managing the financial health of its member agencies based upon information contained in the IRS Form 990.  If an agency does not meet at least three of the six criteria established by Allied Arts for this purpose, the agency will be deemed to be "at risk" and steps will be taken to aid the organization in rectifying its deficiencies.  If appropriate, Allied Arts will provide a consultant to perform an organizational audit and aid in its recovery.  The consultant will be asked to work with the agency to develop a plan for recovery.  The exact nature of the recovery plan will depend on the nature of the agency's business and the source of the difficulties being experienced.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Our favorite time of year at Allied Arts is when we get to hear the success stories of our member agencies through the annual major grants, or allocations, process.  This is when we learn of the real, tangible impact the arts has on our community.  We read the thank you letters from students across the state who have seen their first ballet or heard their first orchestral concert.  We hear about the child you escaped hardships at home by continuing to take dance lessons.  We learn about theatre being used to teach children to read, to make science accessible, and to make Shakespeare relevant and cool. 
The arts are not just about entertainment.  The arts change lives.  The arts inspire.  The arts educate.  The arts can make a difference.
