Get Involved

Each year, members of the parent community demonstrate their generosity and deep commitment to Columbia College and its students by supporting the Parents Fund.

During the 2021-22 Fiscal Year, more than 700 parents gave to the Parents Fund, donating more than $2.2 million. Through their participation, these parents affirmed their roles as stakeholders in the College and expressed their commitment to the success of all students.

Every gift makes a difference

Parents who make a gift of any size to the Parents Fund will receive periodic communications from the College that highlight students who benefit from their support.

Parents with cumulative annual giving of $2,500 or more are counted as members of the John Jay Associates, a special giving society for alumni, parents and friends of the College.

Parents with cumulative annual giving of $10,000 or more are eligible to join the Parent Leadership Council.
