Make an Impact

Tyler represents a small, collaborative community of bold thinkers and makers who work closely with world-class faculty of creatives, professionals and scholars themselves, set in a state-of-the-art facility that allows creativity and learning to flourish.

You can advance the Tyler School of Art and Architecture in a variety of ways:

Student success 

Scholarships are a top priority for providing our diverse and talented students who need assistance with an opportunity to experience one of the top-ranked art and architecture schools in the nation. Your support of scholarships will help shape the future of artistic vision and creative activity, as well as attract the best and brightest students to Tyler. 

A new scholarship fund can be endowed with a minimum gift of $50,000. There are also many existing funds which would benefit from gifts of any size.

“It’s thrilling that we can influence young, creative minds. The artists that Tyler trains…are people who deserve support.”

– the late Irvin J. Borowsky, Tyler friend and donor

Innovative Programming 

Part of the extraordinary Tyler experience includes offering students access to diverse and interdisciplinary programs that enhance mentorship, promote opportunities to collaborate and advance careers, stay current with innovation in creative practice, deepen engagement with the surrounding urban communities and connect to larger artistic and cultural networks across the world. These programs include visiting artists and scholars, exhibits, lecture series and various departmental initiatives. 

Whatever your specific interest, you have the ability to make a difference by supporting specific Tyler programs or departments.

“For me, timing matters—I give to make an impact today and as an investment in the Tyler of tomorrow.”
