We want to keep you updated on the ways in which Allied Arts is addressing the impact of COVID-19 on our fundraising as well as on our member agencies and grantees. Allied Arts continues to mobilize vital funding for, and to advocate on behalf of, central Oklahoma’s cultural community. We are compiling resources, coordinating learning and sharing sessions via teleconference, and bringing together civic, philanthropic and corporate leaders in the community to help us all navigate this unprecedented situation.
Our member agencies are losing significant revenue by the hour as they close spring break camps, postpone events, and cancel exhibits, performances and other programs. That’s why it is so vital to continue our fundraising efforts. Dollars raised through our annual campaign are unrestricted and provide the very dollars that are at risk for our member agencies. Allied Arts will continue to fundraise utilizing traditional methods and creative options we are developing to combat the restrictions we face as a result of COVID-19.
We are very grateful for your investment in the arts and our community. Please stay safe and healthy. We look forward to coming together soon with you and our network of Allied Arts friends to celebrate and enjoy the arts!
