Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Challenge

On April 11, 2007, John W. Kluge CC’37 took an historic step in our campaign. National headlines announced that he had pledged to Columbia the largest amount ever given to financial aid at any university, $400 million, of which $200 million has been designated for students in Columbia College. Kluge’s transformative gift has already inspired others to help meet the remaining Campaign goal for College financial aid endowment giving.
