Columbia Community Service (CCS) seeks to foster just and thriving communities by advancing the work of community-based organizations. An initiative supported by Columbia, Barnard College, and Teachers College, CCS has engaged our university communities to strengthen organizations that are serving the needs of individuals and families living in Morningside Heights and Harlem.

Since 1945, CCS has led an annual appeal campaign among employees at these three institutions with 100% of the donations used to fund grants for nonprofit institutions experienced in building sustainable programs. The administrative costs of CCS are covered by Columbia, Barnard College and Teachers College
