Giving Day 2013
The second annual Columbia Giving Day will be held on October 23, 2013. Once again, alumni and friends will be able to increase the impact of their donation and help “Change Lives that Change the World.” Gifts from now until October 23 will count toward Giving Day. Support the Business School during this early giving period as part of this special campaign.
The Challenge Match
We invite you to join us as we help the Business School secure a portion of a $300,000 University-wide matching gift challenge. Please consider making your gift during this early giving period. The Business School is competing against other Columbia University schools and programs for a slice of these matching funds.
Our goal is to beat last year’s record and increase contributions to the Columbia Business Fund and the Executive MBA Fund, providing essential resources needed to offer the best possible MBA experience.
The Decade Challenge
As a special incentive, the Business School is hosting a separate challenge for our alumni, friends, and faculty and staff members. The group below with the highest number of donors will be featured as a sponsor for a special study break during final exams for our MBA students, and highlighted on the Business School’s Facebook page and in Uris Hall.
Last Year’s Success
Last October, close to 700 Columbia Business School alumni, friends, students, and faculty and staff members donated more than $370,000 on Columbia Giving Day, allowing the School to secure nearly $30,000 from the University-wide Trustees Challenge Match. The money we received continues to fund several key initiatives and programs at the School, including student financial aid, the Columbia Business Lab, faculty research, the Social Enterprise Program, and CaseWorks — just to name a few.
