Giving Day

The Columbia College community came together in a major way on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, in support of the college’s fourth annual Giving Day. The endeavor was a rousing success, raising a record $199,826 from 590 gifts and counting. The total amount raised was an increase of 68 percent from last year’s total, and the number of gifts eclipsed the college’s goal of 500 gifts during the initiative.

“It is truly remarkable to see the level of energy and excitement Giving Day 2022 generated amongst members of our college community,” said Dr. David Russell, president of Columbia College. “These gifts are a reflection of the contributor’s belief in our mission of changing lives through education. The funds raised will benefit our students immediately through scholarship support, innovative new programming and enhanced technology infrastructure across our network of locations nationwide and online. We can’t thank those who supported Giving Day enough for stepping up.”
