Columbia Giving Day: Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Columbia Nurses Change Lives that Change the World

Join Columbia Nursing alumni, students, friends, faculty and staff as we come together to improve health care and patient care in our local communities and around the world on #ColumbiaGivingDay!

Columbia Giving Day is an annual 24-hour online university-wide fundraising event that galvanizes social media, competition and matching funds to address our world’s most pressing issues. 

Your support on Columbia Giving Day 2018 – Wednesday, October 24 -- will enable Columbia nurses to make a difference.  Through challenge funds, your gift will go even further and have amplified impact. 

Last year, thanks to your support, the school set a record of raising nearly $160,000 in just 24 hours – all to benefit students.  Your collective generosity provided Columbia nursing students with:

  • Scholarships: ensuring that today’s students are able to fulfill their dream of improving healthcare.
  • Global Fellowships: enabling students to practice in one of 16 clinical sites located in Ethiopia, Ghana, Mexico, Jamaica, Jordan, Malawi, India, the Republic of Georgia, Italy, Spain, Rwanda, South Africa, The Netherlands and the Dominican Republic.
  • Upkeep of our beautiful new facility: to maintain our purpose-built home for the Columbia Nursing community.
  • Simulation technology: to bridge classroom knowledge with clinical practice in the school’s Helene Fuld Health Trust Simulation Center.
