Columbia SoCal’s impact on Giving Day changes lives and changes the world. Join us and the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) for 24 hours of giving to shape the future of our university.
Gifts support the schools, initiatives, projects, and causes that matter most to us.
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.
We are one Columbia, and our collective impact changes lives and changes the world.
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 on October 18, you invest in Columbia—our students, our faculty, and our potential to address critical issues facing people around the world.
Columbia SoCal provides a space for all University alumni in Southern California to engage with one another and the University. We represent alumni from all schools at the University from the following counties: Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernadino, Riverside, and Imperial. We are excited to help promote this year’s Giving Day and appreciate your participation and support.
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.
