Giving Day

Thank you for joining arms with fellow alumni and friends in support of our students as we kick off the 2024 Giving Day initiative! Every gift made to the Columbia College fund, no matter the size, will be counted towards the celebration on March 14, 2024. Counting starts NOW!

Can we count on you make a participatory gift today as a sign of support for our students?


Check back often to see which class years and locations are most involved and leading with the most participation. Can we achieve 1,000 donations? We think we CAN!  

Thank you for being an important part of the success of this participatory campaign where many small gifts can make a BIG difference! Your support helps the college to strengthen academic and student programming, attract top-tier faculty, bolster athletics, and benefit students nationwide.

Will my small donation really matter?
Yes. All donations add up. Last year, the total amount of gifts received added up to more than $187,000. Every dollar, every gift makes a difference.

Tell me more about the Annual Fund:
The Columbia College Fund is the college's annual giving program and part of Columbia College’s Giving Day Campaign. At CC, we rely on the annual giving program to bridge the gap between the revenue raised through tuition and the total cost of educating every student. All alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and students are asked to come together annually to show their support for the mission of changing lives. The direct beneficiaries of the money we raise each year are CC students, coast to coast.

Additional ways to give:

  • Donate $1,000 or more to the Columbia College Fund to join the Cornerstone Club. This group of donors is committed to providing leadership level support to the college on an annual basis.
  • Check with your company to learn if they offer matching gift opportunities!
  • GIVE BY MAIL: If you would like to give by mail, please indicate "CC Giving Day" in the memo section of your check and mail it to: Columbia College Office of Development | 1001 Rogers St. Columbia, MO 65216
