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.
