The Columbia College Fund is our wellspring of support—it provides the flexible resources needed to be nimble and strategic in response to immediate priorities.
Why Giving Matters
The Columbia College Fund measures its success both in terms of participation - how many alumni and friends make a gift each year - as well as in total dollars raised. Thus every gift to the College Fund, no matter the size, will make an impact.
When you make a gift to the College Fund, you affirm your role as a stakeholder in the College's future and express your commitment to the success of both current and future students.
More than 88% of College Fund donors give gifts under $1,500, totaling over $2.2 million which is the equivalent of 45+ financial aid packages for College students.
