To Ensure Access and Promote Excellence in Journalism
Gifts from alumni and friends enable Columbia Journalism School to educate the next generation of journalists, diversify the student body in every way and help the dramatically changing profession meet its potential and uphold standards of ethical reporting. By making a gift to the Annual Fund or to support other initiatives, you can participate in the school’s philanthropic campaign, which you can read more about here. Thank you for your generosity.
Columbia Giving Day
Join us on October 28 for Giving Day 2020, the annual 24-hour university-wide online fundraising event. This is an opportunity to come together with the J-School community to support the next generation of journalists by making a gift to the Journalism school.
Your contributions will go into the Annual Fund for scholarship support for the next year of J-School students with demonstrated financial need.
Gifts of all sizes make a difference!
By supporting the school on Giving Day, you help us to compete with other schools and programs within Columbia for additional funds provided by the University Trustees, so your generosity will make an even greater impact on the school.
The Journalism School seeks to enroll the very best students, regardless of their economic circumstances. Contributions from alumni and friends to the Annual Fund primarily provide scholarship support.

Donors qualify for the Dean's Circle with cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more ($500 for graduates from the last 10 years) to the Annual Fund within a given fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
