Young Alumni Fund Advisory Board

Young Alumni Fund Advisory Board Image

The Young Alumni Fund Advisory Board (YAFAB) works to grow support for the Columbia College Fund among the young alumni community.

Members of the young alumni community, those who graduated in the last decade, play a vital role in fundraising efforts at Columbia College. This large and influential group represents one fourth of the College’s alumni population and has a tremendous impact on the College Fund’s goals.

The YAFAB develops strategies to inform and engage fellow young alumni, as well as thank classmates for gifts to the College Fund. Members meet quarterly with College Fund staff and are invited to exclusive events with other alumni leaders. The co-chairs work closely with College Fund staff, serving in an advisory role and leading the efforts of the YAFAB.
