Give Different This Holiday Season with a Give Card!

Tired of getting the same old gift for every holiday? Want another way to support the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education? Add a Give Card from Community Shares of Mid Ohio to the top of your list. By giving or asking for a Give Card, you will further help our mission to support arts education in Ohio. The card is both purchased and redeemed online and is tax-deductible for the purchaser.

With your support, the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education is able to:

  • Work hand-in-hand with education partners at the state level to assure that arts education remains a core part of the school curriculum.
  • Support the development of innovative collaborations between schools and cultural institutions to promote the arts as equal partners in the educational enterprise.
  • Speak on behalf of arts education before policy-makers and provide strategic input to the Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Arts Council, local arts organizations, school boards, and educators.
  • Monitor the work of the State Board of Education, House and Senate Education Committees, and other groups working directly on education issues that affect our children, schools, and communities.

Asking for a Give Card is a great way to donate to the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education and is also a perfect gift for any occasion for anyone on your list. The card can be given in any denomination, and can be used to help support our charity in addition to other charities of your choosing.  You will get the satisfaction of giving the card, and the recipient will get the satisfaction of being able to choose which charities to support with their new Give Card.

In order to gift a Give Card, the purchaser must simply go to www.givecard.net and follow the instructions for purchasing a card.  The card can be given in any denomination and is tax-deductible for the purchaser.

Thank you!

About OAAE

Since our founding in 1974, by Dr. Dick Shoup and Jerry Tollifson, our mission has always been to ensure the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Working at the local, state, and federal levels through the efforts of a highly qualified and elected Board of Directors, our members, and a professional staff we have four primary areas of focus: building collaborations, professional development, advocacy, and capacity building. The OAAE is funded in part for its day-to-day operation by the Ohio Arts Council. This support makes it possible for the OAAE to operate its office in Columbus and to work statewide to ensure the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Support for arts education projects comes from the Ohio Arts Council, The John F. Kennedy Center, Ohio Music Education Association, Ohio Art Education Association, Ohio Educational Theatre Association, VSA Ohio, and OhioDance. The Community Arts Education programs of Central Ohio are financially assisted by the Franklin County Board of Commissioners and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. We gratefully acknowledge and appreciate the financial support received from each of these outstanding agencies and organizations.
