Columbia Students Share Your Passion

Ways to Give

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the leading way to support Columbia College Chicago students. By giving to this fund, you provide resources that immediately go to work addressing the college’s most pressing needs, including financial aid, student programming and faculty development.


The Columbia Internship Challenge

In November 2015, the college launched the Columbia Internship Challenge, a collective effort to provide paid internships to students with financial need. For every dollar you contribute, the college will match up to $175,000 in gifts, providing a total of $350,000 for 140 new paid internships.


Scholarship Columbia

Scholarship Columbia is the primary donor-funded scholarship source for continuing students. Your contribution helps ensure students have the financial means to complete their degree.
