Columbia Community Service (CCS) is the giving campaign for staff, faculty, and retirees of Columbia, Barnard, and Teachers College. With funds raised through its annual campaign, CCS makes grants to local nonprofit organizations to help address the needs of underserved individuals in our local community. Grantees focus on everything from education, food and emergency services and eldercare to arts and the environment. CCS also facilitates in-kind contributions, volunteer opportunities, and workshops that connect the University community to local nonprofits.
CCS is part of Columbia’s Office of Government & Community Affairs.
