Friends of the Performing Arts

You can ensure the vitality of the performing arts at The University of Texas at Dallas by becoming a Friend of the Performing Arts. Your annual gift of $1,000 or more helps to provide stimulating academic options for students in the performing arts and a rich cultural environment for the broader community.


Enjoy a full season of exceptional performances by award-winning performers and students alike. See world-acclaimed virtuosos in classical guitar, jazz legends, Grammy winners and international dance companies among the many performers featured each season.
Most events are free and no ticket exceeds $25.


In appreciation, you will be invited to performances, receptions with the artists, lectures and exhibits. Friends enjoy special privileges such as reserved-row seating for performances.

Funding/Giving Options

As a Friend, you provide programmatic funding for a broad spectrum of disciplines in music, theater and dance. You may designate your gift to a particular area of interest, including scholarship and fellowship assistance. Gifts of cash, securities, endowed gifts, planned gifts or employer matching gifts count toward membership.

Formerly known as Tiers of Friendship, the Friends of the Performing Arts program enhances benefit opportunities and continues to enrich the lives of students and the community.
