BIG GIVE is happening right now – November 19th!

BIG GIVE 2015 is happening now! Make your gift to the Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies today – Thursday, November 19th, 2015



The Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies is a home for creativity, a stage for performance, a platform for engagement and a launchpad for innovative research. Here, our students develop the confidence, abilities and communication skills necessary to succeed in any path they choose. Some will go on to become professional actors, dancers or designers; some will become respected researchers; some will work in other fields but all will be enriched by the experience of creating, sharing and studying performing arts.

We are constantly striving to better serve our students. Every dollar donated to TDPS goes directly to bringing together the best academic and performance opportunities for our students: creating a unique place where research meets practice and public engagement.

Your gift will help us support students’ artmaking, provide scholarships, host workshops, and bring distinguished visiting artists from around the world to work with our students. Your tax-deductible donation will also help us continue to keep our ticket prices low, allowing the entire Bay Area community to experience great theater and dance at an affordable price.

BIG GIVE is a 24-hour campus-wide fundraising campaign where alumni, parents, students and YOU can show your support for UC Berkeley.

If you have never donated before, please consider a gift of $20 (or more!) to TDPS – a little goes a long way.

If you have donated before, we would like to thank you again, and ask you to renew your commitment.
