Welcome to NYU Tisch School of the Arts!

Dear Tisch families and friends,
We offer you our warmest welcome on behalf of the Tisch Parents' Council! Comprised of an energetic group of parents, the Council directly connects you with your child's experience at Tisch while allowing you to create relationships and experiences of your own. We come away from each of our Council interactions more connected to the School and its unbelievable spirit of possibility and community.  Please join us!  

What is the Tisch Parents' Council?

The Tisch Parents’ Council is a group of philanthropic families who wish to be involved with their child’s school. These members may attend meetings, social gatherings, and special events where they have opportunities to provide feedback and exchange perspectives with the Dean, the faculty, and administrative leadership of the school. 

Giving

A minimum gift of $10,000 to any program or fund within the Tisch School qualifies for 12-month membership from the date of the gift. Parents may support the Tisch Parents fund, scholarships, or an aspect of their child's department -- such as production funds for the Drama or Film & TV departments. 

In the past three years, Tisch parents have donated over $5M to funds such as scholarships, pipeline programs, production funds, career development, alumni mentor programs, and unrestricted funds at the discretion of the school’s leadership. All this to say that parents' philanthropic support is critical to the education we offer at Tisch.

Annual TISCH GALA

One of the most exciting events is the annual Tisch Gala fundraiser – a dazzling night of entertainment by Tisch students and distinguished alumni.
