Local arts organizations that meet the eligibility requirements can apply each year for an Arts Alliance Tulsa grant. Once the applications are reviewed and approved, by an AAT board-appointed committee, the Grantee Member Organizations are decided for that year.
In order for our supporters to feel confident in making an investment in Arts Alliance Tulsa, AAT collects data and verifies that best business practices are followed by Grantee Members. The Membership and Allocations Committee reviews the applications then selects the most balanced group of grantees possible by using some of the following considerations:
·Market your organization as a member of Arts Alliance Tulsa.
·Place the Arts Alliance Tulsa logo on applicable promotional material.
Unlike foundations or government grants, the amount granted to AAT member organizations is a direct result of the fundraising efforts of all associated with AAT. It is in the best interest of every member to promote, support, be participative in furthering the AAT mission.
No. This is an application for a grant. The word “Member” refers to all accepted organizations as “members” of an alliance.
No. We want you to continue work to better your organization. AAT’s fundraising and marketing efforts are intended to supplement your continued great work.
As with Applications, this process is overseen by The Membership and Allocations Committee and is based on the organizations contributed revenue.
If your question was not answered, please reach out to us. As with any grant, it is important that you understand what it is and the process for applying.
The use of the AAT logo gives additional creditability for our already established standard of excellence. AAT plays a substantial role in ensuring that the arts remain an essential part of education for our local community, and particularly our young people.
Alliance membership continues to have great value for forming collaborating partnerships within the local arts and cultural community, as in the first of its kind collaboration between the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art and the Woody Guthrie Center.
