Columbia Giving Day 2019 + New Events

We normally try to limit the volume of emails we send our members. Our inboxes are full enough and we don't want to add to the chaos. However, since our last email, we've had a few more events we need to share.

But to quickly recap, we've been thrilled that our last newsletter was well received. All three of our upcoming speaker series events sold out in record time. And our Columbia Connects Homecoming event this past Saturday was an absolute SMASH! Didn't hurt that Columbia destroyed Penn 44-6 in our largest Homecoming victory of our program’s 149-year history.

Today's the day!

Giving to your favorite schools, programs, and causes…and amplifying your impact with challenge funds that make your gift go further.
Tracking the leaderboards and seeing the hourly and day-long challenge winners.
Sharing your Columbia pride (and a photo of your pet or your Origami Challenge masterpiece) on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #ColumbiaGivingDay and #StandColumbia.


Show your love for your Alma Mater this Columbia Giving Day.
