Grants Awarded

Arts & Humanities Council of Stillwater, Oklahoma supports the arts in our community through grants to schools, organizations and our city.

You can apply for grants here.

Here’s what some of our recipients have said about our efforts:

“I want to thank you for awarding us the grant that will allow Richmond first-graders to see the performance of Wizard of Oz. We are very excited and want to thank you for making it possible.”

“On behalf of the Stillwater High School Performance Troupe, I would like to thank you for sponsoring the children’s production of Peter Pan.  We performed for three elementary schools in our area and we received fantastic feedback from the children.  It is due to your generous support that we have been able to accomplish so much, and we are very grateful for that support.”

“Thank you for sponsoring the Children’s Operetta Workshop and the presentation of Cinderella.  This fairy-tale favorite was attended by 1124 people in four capacity-packed performances.  It was a huge success.”

Here is what one attendee wrote to the NewPress:

“Congratulations and thanks to the Stillwater Arts and Humanities Council.  At the recent Festival of the Trees fund-raiser, enough money was donated to enable every elementary student in Stillwater’s school district to be able to participate in the Stillwater Multi Arts Center this year as part of the school curriculum”.
