Giving Day 2013

Help Barnard Change Lives that Change the World!
Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Please mark your calendar for October 23, 2013, when Barnard College will join other schools in the Columbia University community for a special online event – 24 hours of linking in, giving back, and winning matching funds for Barnard.  For that one day, graduates from around the world will come together to show their support and participate in online live events with other alums and campus leaders.

When this event debuted last year, Columbia alumni, parents, students, and friends raised more than $6.8 million in a single day. 

This year, you can choose to support Barnard. All gifts designated to Barnard come directly to the College and provide vital financial aid for students and funding for faculty research, while allowing Barnard to maintain its top-quality liberal arts instruction.  Every dollar you give on October 23rd not only increases Barnard’s chance of winning matching funds, but helps create the next generation of smart, independent-minded Barnard women.
