Your tax-deductible gift to the Arts Initiative at Columbia University will help redefine the role of the arts in higher education by making the arts an integral part of every student's experience, by connecting the university to New York City's great artistic diversity, and by linking the arts to other ways of understanding the world. The Arts Initiative depends upon the financial support of alumni, friends, foundations, and corporations to maintain and develop programs that prepare the next generation of artists and audiences. Your contribution in any amount makes a difference and helps nurture Columbia University's artistic energy. Gifts may be unrestricted or may be directed toward a particular program, such as our Core Curriculum Arts Programs, Visiting Artist Residencies, and the Ticket and Information Center in Alfred Lerner Hall. Help us promote life-long involvement in the arts by supporting programs that not only develop the arts on campus but strengthen the link between Columbia and NYC’s vibrant culture.

Our Supporters

The Arts Initiative is deeply grateful to the many alumni, friends, and organizations who have contributed so generously to help fulfill President Bollinger’s far-reaching mandate.
