Tisch Gala 2024

Save the date 2024

Thank you for supporting the 2024 Tisch Gala! With your generosity, we raised nearly $1.2 million in support of critical student needs.

We were thrilled to honor three Tisch alumni: celebrated filmmaker Ang Lee, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Madison Love, and lauded stage and screen actor Corey Stoll. Featured speakers included Dean Allyson Green and NYU President Linda Mills, alumni Maggie Siff and Jean Tsien, and Professor Jeff Peretz. The night wouldn't have been complete without the captivating performances by our talented Tisch students from Drama, Graduate Acting, and the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. And of course, the after-party with DJ TrX kept the celebration going!

Thank you for being part of an unforgettable evening!
