Columbia Community Service
Being a good neighbor by assisting local nonprofit organizations is an important part of Columbia's mission. Columbia Community Service is one of the oldest organizations on campus.
Our yearly campaign is a means for faculty and staff of Barnard College, Columbia University and Teachers College to support soup kitchens, after-school programs, and more critical services, through direct financial contributions.
With the University covering all administrative expenses, 100% of the contributions go directly to services. The grants awarded by CCS are for direct services only, and not for salaries.
