The Ovation Foundation

The Ovation Foundation was 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 that 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 striving to effect 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;
  • Contributing direct support to non-profit arts and cultural institutions and arts education organizations; and,
  • Providing visibility on multiple platforms for the highest quality content produced by the non-profit arts and culture sector.

We work to achieve this mission through three major philanthropic initiatives:
