Philanthropic support of Columbia College is vital to our success. Endowment gifts provide important resources in perpetuity. Columbia College Fund gifts are current-use and allow the College to respond nimbly and strategically to immediate priorities throughout the year. Both types of support help the College sustain excellence and count toward the Core to Commencement campaign.
The Columbia College Fund is how the majority of Columbians participate in Core to Commencement and it is deeply connected with the other campaign priorities. The collective support of College Fund donors—10,000+ Columbians each year—adds up to millions of dollars for financial aid, student life, the Core Curriculum and experiential experiences for students.
