Welcome to The Patron League
In a community where streets were still unpaved and the former Indian Territory was now called Oklahoma, there were trailblazing pioneers who were determined that culture could flourish in the booming oil town of Tulsa. The dream of introducing art, music and literature to this rugged frontier territory was considered challenging at best. Nevertheless, while oil barons built the Tulsa skyline, these cultural crusaders created the “soul of the city”. Over 100 years later, their legacy is now reflected in the vibrancy of the city’s dynamic arts community and is the inspiration behind Arts Alliance Tulsa’s most distinguished group of individual donors.
Membership in the Patron League is reserved for those individuals committed to preserving and promoting the value, diversity, and advancement of art and culture in Tulsa, from the world-class museum to the neighborhood playhouse. The guardianship and future growth of Tulsa’s cultural community has been entrusted to these visionaries who, like the early Tulsans, recognize that art is essential to life.
Charter members of the Patron League will forever be recognized as Founding Patrons and will have their names engraved and permanently commemorated on a commissioned sculpture or some form of public art (TBD) to be displayed in a highly-visible location in downtown Tulsa.
Membership in the Patron League is available to individuals who make an annual unrestricted contribution of $2,000 or more to Arts Alliance Tulsa and is renewable on a rolling basis.
Payments may be at one-time, monthly and by check. If monthly or check is your preference, please contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org

Crisis is the Mother of … Reinvention
The Tulsa arts community is at a pivotal moment.
Tulsa has long been a city characterized by its celebrated cultural assets and its reputation for innovation, energy and creativity.
Now the disruptive forces of the Covid-19 crisis jeopardize the hard-fought battles won by previous generations to build the institutions and audiences that have created an unparalleled quality of life for our community.
Given the magnitude of the challenges and opportunities, Arts Alliance Tulsa believes it is time to reframe the role we play in safeguarding the long-term viability of the arts and cultural sector. Our earlier initiative, the Jane Heard Clinton Society, focused on women only. From that initial effort, AAT realized the need to broaden our purpose and vision, and to incorporate more voices and viewpoints – thus The Patron League was born.
Going forward, The Patron League will expand AAT’s outreach and encourage more community-wide participation to build a stronger, healthier, more dynamic Tulsa through support of the arts.
