GENERAL QUESTION

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.

  • Grant applications go live on artstulsa.org by the mid-November or no later then the first week of  December each year.
  • Organizations are notified of their grant status in February of the following year.
  • Grants are awarded to each AAT organization in the month of December of the year they were awarded membership.
  • WE ARE AWARE THAT YOU MAY NOT HAVE YOUR TAX INFORMATION FOR THE IMMEDIATE YEAR PRIOR. WE ASK FOR YOUR MOST RECENT COMPLETED AND OFFICIAL TAX/FINANCIAL INFORMATION. 
  • The granting cycle is a 12-month (January-December) process from start to finish.

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:

  • What is considered?
    -Does the org. meet all eligibility requirements?
    -Do they support art in areas that are unique or in underserved communities?
    -What is the economic impact of this org. on the community at large?
    -What is the reach of the the org. within the community?
    -What educational opportunities do they offer and what is the reach (Numbers participating)?
    -All demographic information is noted.
    -If a returning org., how did you work with AAT toward a successful campaign result? Were you an active participant?
    -If a returning org., how was your grant used to further your org.?
    -How is the org. working to further itself?
    -Is the org. sustainable?
    -What final combination of orgs. creates the best possible mix of visual arts, performing arts, demographical diversity, uniqueness, impact and positioning of Tulsa within the region.

As with Applications, this process is overseen by The Membership and Allocations Committee and is based on the organizations contributed revenue.

What Our Member Grantees Say

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.
