Gilcrease Council

Join the Gilcrease Council

The Gilcrease Council consists of the museum’s most committed patrons, providing approximately $1 million of much-needed support for museum operations annually. These members impact every corner of the museum from the admission desk to the galleries to the conservation lab and beyond. Membership in the Gilcrease Council provides essential funding for the museum’s everyday needs. Membership in the Gilcrease Council starts at $5,000 annually.

Many Gilcrease Council members make their gifts in five-year intervals. These commitments help provide the museum confidence in planning for the future knowing donors’ intentions for ongoing support. Your gift can have even greater impact if you are associated with a company that provides matching gifts, which provides additional resources for the museum’s operations.

Please contact Frank Mulhern, senior director of development, at 918-596-2756 if you would like to learn more.
