• Parents, Families, and Friends

    New School parents support the university community in numerous ways: attending on-campus events; hosting fellow parents, prospective students, and university leadership in their homes; offering their expertise and perspectives; and making financial contributions.

    One of the most immediate ways to show support to all New School students is by making a gift to the Parents Fund. Donations to the Parents Fund are essential and come in all sizes. A gift in the amount of $5, $25, $100, $1,000, or more helps us to direct funding to the areas of greatest need at The New School. During the last academic year, New School parents came together to contribute well over $250,000. These generous gifts helped to fund unique educational opportunities, student and faculty research opportunities, campus facilities upgrades, curriculum development, and much more. If you are interested in giving today, please visit our Giving page.

    There are also opportunities for parents to take on leadership roles through the Parents Leadership Council. This group will have a significant impact in shaping the future of The New School and helping to strengthen our relationships with the broader community. Members of the Parents Leadership Council make extremely generous donations to The New School. Parents who give $25,000 or more are named co-chairs to the Parents Leadership Council; those who give $10,000 are named members of the Parents Leadership Council.

    We are grateful for the role that each New School parent plays in enhancing the experiences of our talented, innovative students. For questions about giving or how to stay on the inside track, please contact Jeffrey Cabral (director of Development) at or 212.229.5662 x3819.
