Thank you for your generous support. Your contributions to Columbia College, Arts & Sciences, Athletics and the Columbia Libraries reinforce the College’s commitment to offering the greatest undergraduate experience possible to its students.
During Fiscal Year 2017–2018, Columbia College alumni, parents, friends and students gave $19.7 million to the Columbia College Fund, supporting the work of the College and meeting the immediate needs of the College’s students and faculty. Many thanks to those who made a contribution of any size and demonstrated a deep commitment to the long-term success of the College.
Fiscal Year 2017–2018 also marked the expansion of the Core to Commencement campaign. After surpassing its initial goal of $400 million more than two years ahead of schedule, the College announced an expanded goal of $750 million with a focus on advancing the Core Curriculum, supporting faculty, enhancing student wellness and community, increasing the real-world experiences students have beyond the classroom, and strengthening access to and support for all students.
