NONPROFITS IN BRIEF

Allied arts offers grants

Allied Arts accepting applications for grant programs

Allied Arts is currently accepting applications for two of its grant programs — the Educational Outreach Program and the Small Grants Program. The deadline for fall is Friday and for spring is Jan. 24.

As Allied Arts continues to broaden its support of central Oklahoma's outstanding arts community, this is the first time that both programs will be open to non-Allied Arts member agencies that provide quality arts and cultural programming to the community.

The Allied Arts Educational Outreach Program provides grants to qualified central Oklahoma arts nonprofits to help expand the scope and reach of arts youth programs. The focus is on providing arts experiences for underserved K-12 students in central Oklahoma.

The Allied Arts Small Grants Program awards grants to help arts organizations build their organizational capacities in areas like fundraising, board development and volunteer management.

For criteria and application forms, go online to www.alliedartsokc.com/grants. For questions, contact Allied Arts at (405) 278-8944.
