Make A Donation

Click on the link to the right to make a monthly or one-time gift to support our programs.

Monthly gifts are especially impactful, as they provide reliable support we can count on to fund our programs and serve our community. By donating $10, $25, or any amount of your choosing each month, you are helping ensure that our neighbors in need continue to receive high quality services throughout the year.

Your support through a gift of any kind will ensure that our 900 volunteers from Columbia University and Barnard College can continue to deliver educational and social service programs to more than 8,000 low-income people in Upper Manhattan each year. This will strengthen Community Impact as the bridge between Columbia and the community.

Endowment Campaign


Philip Milstein, Vice Chair of the Columbia University Trustees and a longtime CI supporter, officially announced our first Endowment Campaign. Community Impact is building a $5 million endowment that will provide a steady source of revenue for our programs and allow us to do more with more! Through support from the endowment, we will enhance our services, increase volunteer training, build on our evaluations efforts, and improve outreach to our many community members. We are pleased to have raised more than $2 million for the endowment to date. We hope that all of our alumni and supporters will become part of this historic campaign as we secure the remaining $2.9 million.

To learn how you can become a supporter of CI’s Endowment, please contact our office. You may also contribute to the Endowment Campaign by clicking on the link to the right, "Donate Here".
