Today, we change lives that change the world.

About the Day

It’s our day. Columbians everywhere are coming together as we take on global issues like climate change and social justice through new causes and crowdfunding opportunities, and we give back by supporting the schools and programs that changed our lives.

Your gifts will go further, amplified by challenge match funds from the University Trustees. Get ready to set new records, celebrate your Columbia connections…and change lives that change the world.

Pass It On!

Let's share the Giving Day story around the world.
