Why We Give


Why Plan Now To Do More

1754 Society

1754 Society members are forward-thinking alumni and friends who remember Columbia in their will, trust, or other estate plans.

Bringing Your Values To Life

Our mission within the Office of Gift Planning is to inspire and empower alumni and friends to plan, provide, and preserve an enduring future for themselves and Columbia.

Making More Possible

The most extraordinary gift to Columbia is the one that is most meaningful to you. Planned gifts are a thoughtful way to ensure that the part, or parts, of Columbia you care most about will endure.

Impact Makers

We are grateful for the support provided by alumni and friends who have made planned gifts to Columbia University. Through thoughtful planning, they have demonstrated their commitment to the future of Columbia and have created meaningful legacies. Here are some of their stories.
