Your gift in any amount is needed and appreciated. Annual contributions to New World are vital to cultivate our next generation of artists and cultural leaders. 

  • You may contribute to an established endowment made possible by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Surdna Foundation for NWSA's Talented Students in the Arts Initiative, a comprehensive program for high school students that brings major guest artists to the school, places juniors in internships at major arts organizations nationwide, and supports peer to peer mentoring programs.
  • Your gift of $15,000 or more will start a Named College Scholarship. These funds are invested in highly liquid investments and are fully expendable.
  • Your gift of $25,000 creates an Endowed Named Scholarship. All funds in this category are invested in perpetuity
  • Your gift of $75,000 a year for five years will create a Talented Student in the Arts Initiative (TSAI) formerly known as the Doris Duke/Surdna grant. Thanks to a matching grant from the Doris Duke Foundation, your gift will help New World build a $1.5 million visiting artist endowed fund to bring artistic legends like the Martha Graham Company to teach and perform.
