Reunion Giving

Columbia Reunion Photo

Classes return to campus each spring to celebrate their reunion, gather with old friends, share memories and reconnect with the College. These are important occasions to recognize time at Columbia and affirm an important link with current students. This is also an extraordinary opportunity to raise support for the College. Classmates unite to make generous gifts to the College Fund.

The key to a successful Reunion includes strong alumni leadership, ambitious goals and an enthusiastic sense of dedication to the College.

At the core of each Reunion effort is the Gift Committee, a group of alumni volunteers whose aim is to increase unrestricted support for the Columbia College Fund through vigorous outreach to classmates and a spirited commitment to the College. During Reunion Weekend, the Gift Committee for each class presents the Class Gift, a symbol of the alumni community's renewed faith in the College and its ongoing connection with current students. We hope you join fellow alumni in creating a memorable reunion that will make a lasting impact on the college.


Reunion Leadership Partners

Reunion Leadership Partners pave the way for their class reunion campaigns with contributions of $10,000 or more to the Columbia College Fund. For those in their 5th and 1st reunions, Reunion Leadership Partner recognition begins at $5,000 and $1,000, respectively. This generous support from alumni spanning all milestone reunion years is crucial to sustain the growing needs of the College and its remarkable students.
