Donor Groups

OKCityCard

The OKCityCard is the Oklahoma City metro area’s premier entertainment discount card. The OKCityCard has been a powerful fundraising tool for Allied Arts for over a decade, helping the organization raise more than $3.1 million in 2017 to support local arts organizations while saving our donors lots of money.

The OKCityCard is valid for a full year from the time of your donation and can be used for savings at more than 300 locations across the Oklahoma City metro area. Partners are located in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Moore, Norman, Yukon, Shawnee, and more and include popular restaurants, museums, shops, attractions, arts events, hotels, galleries and classes.

You can get your OKCityCard for a $50 donation to Allied Arts and save big bucks while supporting arts and cultural organizations in central Oklahoma. Your $50 donation could admit 10 elementary school students to their first orchestra concert, help offset bussing costs for a middle school field trip to an art museum, or help provide funding for free after-school arts programs for at-risk students.
