Skirball Center for the Performing Arts - New York University



You can be a part of Skirball's history! Your gift to sponsor a seat at NYU Skirball Center will help sustain and grow the L. Jay Oliva Endowment Fund, an endowment created in honor of our late Executive Producer and NYU President Emeritus, Dr. L. Jay Oliva. His inspiring vision and leadership of Skirball set a course for a Center dedicated to sharing the transformative potential of live performance with young adults and enthusiastic new audiences. This fund provides a foundation for NYU Skirball Center’s programs and presentations to continue on into the future.

When you sponsor a theater seat, you automatically become an NYU Skirball Member. You will soon after start receiving the benefits of membership including exclusive information about upcoming shows, invitations to special events, and other promotions.
