Giving Day

The Columbia College community rallied around a common cause on March 23, 2023, to raise nearly $188,000 in support of the college’s fifth annual Giving Day. More than 260 donors combined to contribute the second-highest total in the history of the initiative.

“These acts of generosity from dedicated supporters enable Columbia College to further its mission of providing quality education to both traditional and nontraditional students, helping them achieve their true potential,” says President Dr. David Russell. “Together, we devote ourselves to improving students’ lives, and I am grateful to each person who helped deliver this year’s smashing results.”

Alumni donors ranged from the Christian College Class of 1947 to graduates in the Class of 2022, spanning 75 years of Cougar family members.
