40th Anniversary Comprehensive Campaign

In honor of OAI’s 40th Anniversary, the Oklahoma Arts Institute and the OAI Foundation have launched a $6 million campaign to ensure adequate funding and facilities for the future of OAI’s programs. We invite you to be a part of it by making a special gift to help us reach these goals:

$3.5 MILLION FOR ENDOWMENT

The OAI Foundation manages an endowment to sustain OAI’s programs in perpetuity. Donations to endowment will support:

  • Scholarship funds for students attending OSAI
  • Scholarship funds for educators attending OFAI
  • Faculty chairs
  • Program funds
  • Guest artist funds

$1 Million for Quartz Mountain

With over 30 years of use, the facilities at the Quartz Mountain Arts and Conference Center have served OAI well but need major renovation and repair. Donations to facilities will support the following projects at Quartz Mountain:

  • Construction of a film & video pavilion
  • Addition of a new digital editing suite for the photography pavilion
  • Renovation of existing studio pavilions, including exterior repairs and new paint, flooring, windows, doors and lighting
  • Updates to the performing arts center and amphitheater

$1.5 MILLION FOR PROGRAM NEEDS

With recent major cuts in state funding, immediate support for OAI’s programs is more critical than ever. Donations to programs will help fund:

  • Scholarships for the Summer and Fall Arts Institutes
  • Recruitment of stellar faculty
  • Classroom equipment and supplies
  • Auditions for the Summer Arts Institute

HONORING OUR PAST AND SECURING OUR FUTURE
