Oklahoma History Patrons Society

The Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Historical Society has approved the establishment of the Oklahoma History Patrons Society to recognize individuals, companies, organizations, and foundations for their total cash contributions to the Oklahoma Historical Society over time. The list will continue to evolve each year as new donors meet the qualifications to be listed and as existing donors make new contributions.

All donors who reach $10,000 or more in total contributions are eligible for membership. This includes contributions to the OHS, to the Oklahoma History Center, and to the various Friends organizations supporting OHS museums and sites statewide. The members of the Patron Society will be listed annually in Mistletoe Leaves and in OHS EXTRA!, and other means of expressing appreciation to OHPS members will be explored.

Below are the members of the OHPS as of December 12, 2012. We are grateful to have received the support of each of these donors.
