The Ovation Foundation

The Ovation Foundation launched in 2014 to provide a focus for Ovation’s philanthropic, advocacy, and educational initiatives. As America’s only arts network, Ovation plays a key role in the national arts delivery system. Through the Ovation TV channel we are dedicated to showcasing best-in-class programming about artists, their work and the powerful impact art has on each of us. In our community we are passionate about providing access to the arts for everyone. This means going beyond what we provide on-air and online and driving change on a local, regional and national level.

Our mission is to support and increase access to the arts by:

  • Educating the public on the importance and value of the arts;
  • Advocating for prioritization of the arts through social action campaigns to increase funding and expand educational opportunities
  • Contributing direct support to non-profits, cultural institutions, and arts education organizations

We work to achieve this mission through the following major philanthropic initiatives:
