Give to TDPS
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. We invite you to join our community by participating in the giving opportunities below.
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.
Funds generated from the David Wood Endowment underwrite dance program expenses above and beyond the annual budget. The endowment honors former faculty member David Wood and the dedication with which he and Marni Thomas Wood worked to establish the dance program at UC Berkeley.
The Anne-Marie Balke Memorial Fund supports an annual prize to a deserving student in Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies to inspire and encourage their creative and academic journey.
