While the majority of the yearly budget comes from tuition, the Studio still relies on the generous support of donors. While general support donations are most helpful, there are a variety of programs to support if a donor prefers to earmark their contribution, including:

  • The Stella Adler Studio of Acting – General support for world class actor training programs and extracurricular activities that support the mission – Growth as an Actor and Growth as a Human Being are Synonymous
  • Scholarships – admission has always been based on talent and dedication alone. No student should be denied a Stella Adler education for want of funds. Making that conviction a reality has become increasingly challenging as costs for education continue to rise. In order to meet this extraordinary need, many generous individuals, foundations and corporations contribute to scholarships.
  • The Stella Adler Outreach Division – providing free actor training and scholarships to low-income youth
  • The Stella Adler Building Fund – a permanent home would allow the Studio to continue to further this mission and to house our ever-growing cultural center
  • The David Oppenheim Concert Series – providing Jazz and Classical music concerts that are free and open to the public
  • The Harold Clurman Laboratory Theatre Company – a professional theater company
  • The Harold Clurman Center for the Spoken Word – exploring the relationship between the actor and dramatic language and to celebrate dramatic and poetic language, providing free poetry readings
  • The Harold Clurman Center for New Work in Movement and Dance Theatre or M.A.D. – dedicated to the creation of new work
  • The Jacob Adler Center – devoted to the translation and production of great Yiddish plays

The Stella Adler Studio is a public charity exempt from income, gift, and estate taxes under the 501(c)3 section of the Internal Revenue C
