For the third year in a row, the Columbia community comes together in a 24-hour blitz to "change lives that change the world."
From midnight to midnight on October 29, 2014, alumni and donors are asked to step up, shout out, and share their Columbia pride and support of an institution whose research, students, faculty, alumni, and ideas. Post to social media using #ColumbiaGivingDay and consider doing the following:
1. Become a Giving Day advocate --
The five schools with the most advocates before midnight on October 28 will win their share of $26,000. (Visit the leaderboard tab to see who's currently at the top.)
2. Become a ColumbiaSOCIAL media ambassador
Help the word travel farther and faster through your social networks. Win special prizes during the Giving Day week, and keep being an ambassador all year long.
Here's to the third year that Columbia Giving Day demonstrates the excellence of our University, and the power of our alumni networks -- in a single day.
