You can be a part of our history and help shape the future of NYU Skirball! Thanks to a generous capacity-building grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, NYU Skirball installed new theater seats in 2019-2020.

As an added bonus, when you sponsor a theater seat, you automatically become an NYU Skirball Member. You will soon after start receiving your benefits including discounts on performances and events, exclusive information about upcoming shows, waived ticketing fees, and invitations to special events.

Whether you are a past, present, or future donor, your sponsorship of a beautiful theater seat is a unique gift and a special way to show your appreciation for those you care about. Join us and sponsor a theater seat today!
