Columbia College to celebrate Columbia Giving Day

On Wednesday, October 21, Columbia College will take part in the fourth annual Columbia Giving Day, a 24-hour University-wide fundraising initiative. The College will earn a share of $400,000 in matching funds from University Trustees based on the winners of hourly challenges and day-long competitions, increasing the impact of gifts and helping the College provide additional resources for students.

Columbia Giving Day, October 21, 2015Last year, the College continued its tradition of success on Giving Day, with alumni, parents and friends giving more than $3.1 million — more than any other school at Columbia, and more than a third of all gifts received for Giving Day.
