The Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) is a global network connecting Columbians of all schools to one another and to the University. It links over 300,000 alumni through more than 100 regional clubs and shared interest groups, online resources, and over 200 programs around the world each year. Wherever you are in the world, and whatever you're passionate about, find the benefits of being a Columbian for life at alumni.columbia.edu. On Giving Day, we support the schools, programs, and causes that are important to us. We foster innovative research, revelatory art, championship athletics, and the transformative experience of a Columbia education.
In addition to supporting school and program annual funds across the University, donors can designate their gifts to a crowdfunding project or impact initiative. Challenge and prize money is distributed to the winning school, program, or cause’s annual fund.
Annual fund gifts to schools and programs across the University support the areas of greatest need, making a vital difference in the lives of students and faculty. We come together to give through Columbia, taking on global issues like climate change and social justice through new causes and opportunities. With a gift today, you invest in Columbia—our students, our faculty, and our potential to address critical issues facing people around the world.
