Columbia offers one of the largest and most diverse athletics programs in the nation, with 31 varsity teams competing at the NCAA Division I level. Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends are critical to Columbia Athletics roaring to victory.

Gifts to sports programs and The Fund for Excellence directly support the most critical needs: buying training gear and equipment, enhancing recruiting and travel budgets, building and maintaining facilities, creating initiatives that promote student-athlete well-being, and more. Every gift counts!

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!
