Change Starts with You
On October 21, 2015, Columbians around the globe will unite to continue changing lives that change the world. Be a part of the movement by giving back, sharing your story, and participating in challenges to win matching funds for your favorite schools, programs, and initiatives.
The third annual Columbia Giving Day was a huge success! Together we raised a total of $11,064,924 for the University and its schools and programs, with 10,452 gifts from 50 states and 53 countries.
