How to Give
By Credit Card
Make your gift using our secure online gift form or call us toll-free at (866) GIFTSYS (1-866-443-8797).
Make checks payable to Columbia University and, to ensure that they are properly credited, please include a note about your gift's purpose. Mail checks and letters to:
Columbia University Gift Systems
Columbia Alumni Center
622 W. 113th Street, MC 4524
New York, NY 10025
Do you pay taxes in other countries? Consult a professional tax advisor before making a gift to review local tax laws and regulations.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of appreciated stocks and bonds are popular among Columbia alumni and friends. If you are considering a donation of $1,000 or more, there are many tax advantages to giving securities.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs. Ask if your or your spouse’s company has a matching gift program so you can double the impact of your gift to Columbia.
Give Over Time
Planned gifts offer a variety of benefits for both donors and Columbia. There are several options that allow you to support Columbia while meeting other financial goals.
A recurring gift is an easy, automatic way to give according to your budget and schedule. Recurring gifts are customizable for donors and help ensure a stable source of funding for Columbia. Simply choose “recurring gift” when you give online.
By spreading a donation over time, pledges help you make larger gifts at your own pace, allowing a potentially greater impact on the University. Some donors make multi-year pledges, often over five years or less.
For information about making a pledge, call 212-851-7960 or e-mail email@example.com.
