Organizations I admire


Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is a Tulsa based 501c3 nonprofit collaborative organization established in 2004. OAA’s primary purpose is to bring together the people and resources needed to overcome pet homelessness, abuse and neglect.

Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation, encouraging responsible pet ownership and promoting the humane treatment of animals through community collaboration and education.


Every kitten season, thousands of motherless kittens are at risk of death on the streets and in animal shelters. Without a mother to care for them, kittens face impossible odds, and can’t survive without specialized care.

Orphan Kitten Club is on a mission to end the killing of neonatal kittens–and to give every kitten a chance at a full and happy life. We are building a safer world for the tiniest felines by rescuing them in our state-of-the-art kitten nursery, ending the cycle of reproduction through sterilization, and providing the world’s first grant program targeted at saving neonatal kittens.


Our mission is to help students, schools, and communities reach their full potential through the power of making music. As one of the leading music foundations in the United States, we support our partner communities in three ways:

WE INVEST IN SCHOOLS

WE SUPPORT TEACHERS

WE ADVOCATE FOR MUSIC EDUCATION


Music Unites is a national charity with the mission to raise academic and lifetime achievement for at-risk public school students through the support and creation of unique music education partnerships and programs. We currently provide free after-school music programs to youth through school-based partnerships, along with special monthly workshops designed in alignment with standards for career and college readiness. Music Unite’s life-changing programs and events help educate and guide our youth toward planning and achieving responsible goals for their future. Music Unites also leverages our student’s innate talents and elevates the next generation of performers by providing audiences, venues, and special performance opportunities, while at the same time enriching the listening experience of the public with performances from aspiring artists across a wide range of genres that exist in the increasingly diverse world of music.


ASTEP was conceived by Broadway Musical Director Mary-Mitchell Campbell and Juilliard students to transform the lives of youth using the most powerful tool they had: their art. Today, ASTEP connects performing and visual artists with youth from underserved communities in the U.S. and around the world to awaken their imaginations, foster critical thinking, and help them break the cycle of poverty.


Broadway Because is passionately focused on utilizing the power of Broadway’s diverse, creative and multi-talented community to support causes and projects that strive to make the world a better place.
