Two Weeks Left to Give

Thanks to generous community support, Pulse has never turned away a student for an inability to pay. In 2022, approximately one out of every five students was awarded between 30% to 100% of the cost of tuition.

We have until December 31 to meet our generous $5000 matching grant from Alander Construction. For the second year in a row, Alander will match all donations up to $5000, dollar for dollar.

This grant supports our Tuition Assistance Program. Learn more in our 2022 impact report and appeal.

Support Pulse Teaching Artists

Pulse teaching artists and artists-in-residence Tom Truss and Moscelyne ParkeHarrison are hosting fundraisers to continue their respective creative work.

Tom Truss and collaborator Matthew Cumbie are raising money to finish the set and work with a composer for their work ReWritten, which reflects on the relationship between authors Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne. 

Moscelyne ParkeHarrison’s Art Tonic 3.0 is the first live iteration of BODYSONNET’s yearly fundraiser. This year, they are zooming in on their multimedia collaborators, past and future, all in support of more projects for the 2023 season. 

Looking to 2023…

We’re excited to announce we have received a matching grant from Alander Construction for the second year in a row, which means every dollar donated will be doubled – up to $5,000! 

Your generosity is at the heart of our Pulse.
