Graduating doesn’t mean that Columbia is part of our past. It simply opens the door to our post graduation relationship with the school.
As alumni, there are several ways to stay involved or get re-engaged with the school. Attend any of the social or career-focused alumni events (check out colum.edu/AlumniEvents), volunteer for one of our alumni chapters across the country, use your talents to help students on campus, or donate to your favorite scholarship fund to help students stay in school. These are all great ways to connect and advance the Columbia community.
Our alumni volunteers who make up the Columbia Alumni Association & Network (CAAN) have initiated The Power of 5 giving campaign. Offering alumni an opportunity to “create change” through giving, The Power of 5 is one way you can make a difference for the next generation by supporting students now.
Alumni can donate monetary gifts to the Alumni Scholarship Fund in any increment of the number 5, starting with as little as $5! All of these gifts will be matched 2:1, but only until August 31, 2013. The goal is to raise $50,000 in five months. Go to colum.edu/Powerof5 to make your gift count times three.
Because CAAN is the alumni force behind The Power of 5, we need all of our alumni to get involved to help Columbia be the best it can be, and for our alumni community to be the most supportive it can be.
If you have any questions, please contact us at any time.
