• Giving to The New School

  • Giving at The New School
  • Your giving is a powerful demonstration of support for our university community and the transformative work we undertake to foster a more just, more sustainable, and better designed world. This high-impact work is possible only at a university like ours, where students forge new paths that bring together creativity and critical thinking in ways that align with timeless New School values. With your help, we can continue to cultivate graduates who go on to make a difference in the world and establish careers that reflect the promise of a New School education.

    Your generosity helps The New School offer high-quality education to the next generation of groundbreaking scholars, social scientists, artists, designers, and performers. 

    The New School funnels its resources towards relevant change-making endeavors that bring our mission and vision to life. Initiatives ranging from the Parsons Scholars program—which brings college preparation and design education to underserved local high school students—to funded scholarships, professorships, and research, to the expansion of cutting-edge labs all raise awareness of the university and enhance its reputation. Your support enables The New School’s renowned colleges — Parsons School of Design, Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, the College of Performing Arts, The New School for Social Research, the Schools of Public Engagement, and Parsons Paris — to fuel the rigorous scholarship and purpose-driven experimentation needed today.
