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. As a contributor to TDPS, you will enable us to provide scholarships, host workshops, and bring distinguished visiting artists and schools 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.
We invite you to join our community by becoming a donor today.

WAYS TO SUPPORT
There are a variety of ways to support the work of TDPS. Every gift, no matter the size, is valuable and appreciated.
- Annual Fund –Providing yearly support to our operating budget through the generous donations of supporters of TDPS, the Annual Fund supports artist residencies, visiting scholars, special workshops/lectures, and professional development coaching for students. The Annual Fund also helps support the smaller class sizes necessary to develop artistic and expressive skills in young artists and thinkers.
- David Wood Endowment – The David Wood Endowment provides a base of support for TDPS in perpetuity. Income generated from the fund helps to underwrite dance program expenses above and beyond the annual dance budget.The endowment was established to honor David Wood and the dedication with which he and Marni Thomas Wood worked to establish the dance program here at UC Berkeley.
- In-kind Kindness – As we host receptions, donor gatherings, student celebrations and holiday parties throughout the year, we are always grateful for “in-kind” donations of food, drink, or party-hosting.
- Planned Gifts – By making a gift in your will or estate plans, you can show your support and appreciation for TDPS’s mission, while accommodating your personal and philanthropic goals. If you are interested in making a planned gift, please contact the Office of Gift Planning at 510-642-6300 or email@example.com.
