Thank You

Alumni, parents, students and friends came together in Fiscal Year 2014–2015 to raise a remarkable $26.9 million to support undergraduate education at Columbia College. It is because of the generosity of so many that the College is able to welcome the most talented students, regardless of their financial background. Students come to the College wanting to change the world, and we are able to provide them with the tools to do so thanks to your support. From offering students the chance to participate in eye-opening discussions in deliberately small sections of Core courses, to hands-on research programs, to access to New York City’s stellar cultural institutions, the College offers an exceptional undergraduate experience, all made possible because of the more than 15,000 donors to the College, Arts and Sciences, Athletics and the Columbia Libraries, and the 3,000 volunteers who partnered with us this year. The successes of the past year have also paved the way for the launch of Core to Commencement, a campaign that will make a great College even greater and create what we can all believe to be the greatest undergraduate experience there is. Thank you!
