• Giving Policies

    The New School, a nonprofit corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York, encourages the solicitation and acceptance of gifts to The New School for purposes that will help further and fulfill its mission. 

    The New School is a legendary progressive university comprising eight schools bound by a common goal: to prepare and inspire its 9,400 undergraduate and graduate students to bring positive change to the world. At its Greenwich Village campus, The New School trains economists and actors, fashion designers and urban planners, dancers and anthropologists, orchestra conductors, filmmakers, political scientists, organizational experts, jazz musicians, scholars, psychologists, historians, journalists, and above all, world citizens—individuals whose ideas and innovations forge new paths of progress in the arts, design, humanities, public policy, and the social sciences. In addition to its 70 graduate and undergraduate degree-granting programs, the university offers certificate programs and more than 1,000 continuing education courses to 13,000 adult learners every year.
