Why Support Tisch?

When the Tisch School of the Arts was founded in 1965, there were few universities that offered programs encompassing a broad range of performing and media arts.  Forty-five years later, Tisch remains a leader in education worldwide due to the dedication of faculty, talented students, alumni, parents, and friends of the school.

Tisch School of the Arts is constantly evolving with new classes, disciplines, and techniques to remain a top ranked arts school.  Without the generosity and support of those who have given to Tisch in the past, and those who will in the future, this would not be possible.

Giving to Tisch provides scholarships for students in need; allows students to have opportunities that may otherwise not be accessible, such as studying abroad or obtaining an internship; and allows the school to expand its physical space with the growing demand of larger classes and more students. 

With a gift to the Tisch School of the Arts, you are helping to build and sustain an extraordinary training ground for artists of every variety, and the scholars and thinkers who examine, interpret, and advance their work. In the School’s ten artistic departments and two scholarly departments, in both the student body and the faculty, you will find some of the most original voices in the next generation of actors, dancers, designers, playwrights, screenwriters, theatre and film directors, composers, lyricists, librettists, photographers, digital artists, film critics, teachers, researchers, theorists and scholars.
