As Columbia College's annual fund, the Columbia College Fund provides critical resources in support of Core Curriculum, financial aid, internships, student life and much more.
How to Support the College Fund
Contributions to the College Fund are current-use and immediately available to serve our students and the faculty who teach them. Your gift to the College Fund can be unrestricted, so it may be used where it's needed most, or you can direct your support to these main College priorities.
You can also direct your support to the Columbia College Fund Scholarships which are awarded to College students each year:
Black Alumni Council Scholarship
Columbia College Pride Scholarship
Columbia College Women Scholarship
Young Alumni Scholarship
Gifts to the Parents Fund also provide unrestricted, current-use resources to the College that can be used where they are needed most.
Why Giving Matters
When you make a gift to the College Fund, you affirm your role as a stakeholder in the College's future and express your commitment to the success of both current and future students. All gifts to the College Fund support students and improve their Columbia College experience.
The College Fund measures its success on both participation — how many alumni, parents and friends make a gift each year — and total dollars raised. College rankings produced by publications such as the U.S. News & World Report factor alumni giving rates into their rankings. Therefore, every gift to the College Fund, no matter the size, will make an impact.
