Arts Initiative

Gifts to the Arts Initiative support diverse programming that helps Columbians experience and create arts and performance. From awarding grants to student art makers, to facilitating free student admission to more than 30 museums, to selling discounted performance tickets through our Ticket and Information Center, today the Arts Initiative is integral to the fabric of campus life. Thank you for your continued support.

When Columbians come together, extraordinary things can happen in a day’s time. On October 21, 2015, thousands of individuals from the Columbia University community made an unprecedented impact through Columbia Giving Day. The generosity of these alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends is changing the lives of Columbians who will change the world. Thank you!
