Any gift of $5 or more will bring us closer to our goal. Every gift makes a difference. Your participation is integral to the success of your graduating class and GS!

Your gifts to the GS Annual Fund are designated for the School’s top priorities:

Financial Aid
Scholarship needs for students at the School of General Studies are growing. Your support allows the school to continue to offer students at GS an exceptional educational experience at Columbia University.

Student Services
From academic advising to career guidance to mentoring programs, GS offers students the support they need along the way to make their dreams of a Columbia education a reality.

Other Initiatives
Enhancements like thesis stipends, academic prizes, and student-faculty dinner exchanges support the academic experience of GS students and keep GS at the forefront of undergraduate education. Because collective giving adds up to significant support, every gift truly makes a difference to GS students.

Email gs-senior-gift@columbia.edu and let us know that you want to be a part of a great tradition.

With Senior Fund participations growing over the past five years, GS seniors are demonstrating their support for their Columbia education and are setting new standards for giving back. Past graduates gave what they could--some gave between $5 and $25 and others gave over $5,000.
