OAAE Receives Funding Pledge From Community Shares of Mid Ohio’s Workplace Giving Campaigns

The numbers are in! Thanks to generous supporters and donors like you, The Ohio Alliance for Arts Education received $1,890 in pledges from Community Shares of Mid Ohio’s workplace giving campaigns. Pledged donations will go towards our mission of making quality arts education available to all Ohio students.


Community Shares of Mid Ohio organizes workplace giving campaigns and allocates a share to OAAE on a quarterly basis. Donors can specify OAAE as the recipient of their donations and OAAE can earn more from a general fund by participating in Community Shares.

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, 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.
