• Annual Giving

    The Annual Fund is the foundation of all giving at The New School, and it supports almost all of the university’s academic and artistic endeavors. Gifts to this vital fund are unrestricted—they can be used immediately to support students, faculty, facilities, and programming.

    Last year, alumni, parents, trustees, and friends of the university generously contributed more than $3.3 million to the Annual Fund. Please consider being a part of this year’s community of loyal supporters to break that record! You can make a gift in support of the university as a whole or to a particular college to address school-specific needs.

    Unrestricted gifts contributed on an annual basis have a direct impact on the quality of a New School education. And every donation, regardless of the amount, serves as a catalyst for generating additional support. Foundations and corporations frequently look at the commitment of those closest to an institution when deciding whether or not to support it.
