Tulsa Ballet Critical Support Fund

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges to performing arts organizations worldwide, and Tulsa Ballet is no exception. Due to the cancelled or postponed performances, classes, and events, we have experienced a 24% loss in overall revenue, and anticipate an even greater loss in this coming season. However, with the support of our Ballet family, we know we will emerge from this crisis a better organization than before, stronger and more resilient, ready to continue fulfilling our mission and pursuing excellence in all we do.

Thanks to the many who have already contributed, as of July 15, 2020, we’ve raised more that $45,000!

And now, Tulsa Ballet is the proud recipient of a challenge grant from the George Kaiser Family Foundation. Through October 31, every dollar you give to the Critical Support Fund will be matched, up to $30,000, by GKFF, doubling your impact and helping ensure the future of the arts in your community.

And for our local donors, Polo Grill has generously agreed to provide a $50 gift card to every donor who commits $100 or more to this fund!



Thank you to our Critical Support Fund donors as of July 15, 2020.
