Allied Arts Announces 2024 Fundraising Campaign Leadership

Thursday, January 4, 2024


Allied Arts has announced the campaign chairs and honorary chairs for its 2024 fundraising campaign. Serving as this year’s campaign chairs are Jill and Sean Trauschke, while Glenna and Dick Tanenbaum will be recognized as honorary chairs of the campaign.

Under the leadership of Jill and Sean Trauschke, the Allied Arts 2024 campaign will officially kick off in February. The Trauschkes are loyal Allied Arts donors and long-time members of the Allied Arts patron group, Circle Club. Sean Trauschke serves as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of OG&E. Trauschke also serves on several community boards, but says the arts have a special place in his heart. “The arts provoke curiosity, expand the mind, and encourage people to believe that anything they can imagine is achievable,” said Trauschke. “Allied Arts champions and practices this across Oklahoma, and I’m excited to be part of transforming the lives of Oklahomans through the arts.” In addition to Allied Arts, Jill’s volunteer leadership includes work with the Metropolitan Library System, Oklahoma Single Parent Scholarship Program, Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma and the Arts Council Oklahoma City’s Festival of the Arts.

Joining the Trauschkes on the campaign are Glenna and Dick Tanenbaum, who will serve as 2024 honorary chairs. Dick is principal owner and CEO of Gardner Tanenbaum, and Glenna is an interior designer. They have provided volunteer leadership to the Greater OKC Chamber, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, Oklahoma City Jewish Federation, Oklahoma Contemporary and the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools; together, they have been steadfast champions for the arts and education.

The Allied Arts campaign will launch on February 1 at the Civic Center Music Hall with the annual Campaign Kickoff event.
