Every gift 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. We invite you to join our community of supporters by participating in the giving opportunities below.

Giving Opportunities

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund supports a broad range of operations and programs, including artist residencies, workshops and lectures, and visiting scholars. The Annual Fund also helps maintain the smaller class sizes necessary to develop artistic and expressive skills in young artists and scholars.
