In response to a survey demonstrating a $33.1 million negative impact on central Oklahoma arts organizations due to COVID-19, the Kirkpatrick Family Fund has announced a $1 million commitment to Allied Arts over a three-year period to assist in nonprofit arts recovery and forward momentum.
“As we emerge out of a pandemic year, the Kirkpatrick Family Fund is committed to helping restore the educational, visual, and performing arts that are vital to a thriving society and economy,” said Christian Keesee, President, Kirkpatrick Family Fund. “Oklahoma arts organizations have endured an astounding blow: millions of dollars in lost revenue and hundreds of jobs eliminated, setting our once thriving organizations back to statistics they haven’t seen in over a decade in some cases. Our hope for this gift is that Oklahomans are encouraged to also consider increasing their support to help propel the trajectory of arts and culture in Oklahoma for future generations to enjoy.”For more information on the gift, click here.
