A recurring gift is an easy way to increase your giving impact at the College. When you give more frequently, you'll see that even small donations really add up over time. You can choose to make a fixed number of gifts or leave your gift open-ended. Either way, we will charge your card automatically every month, quarter, or year without any further action on your part. Your credit card information will be stored securely by our card processing partner.


Make checks payable to Columbia University and, to ensure that they are properly credited, please include a note about your gift's purpose.
