PROGRAMS

Our sport programs' most critical needs are directly supported by annual gifts to individual sports programs and to The Fund for Excellence. Your generosity helps to offset equipment costs, enhance budgets for recruiting and travel, sustain ongoing operating budgets, build and maintain new facilities, and create new initiatives that promote student-athlete wellbeing. Every piece of support adds up.


On a larger scale, sports program endowments ensure the continued security and success of our teams. Endowment funds provide a lasting source of support and can be directed toward a variety of priorities: underwriting the acquisition and upkeep of equipment, student-athlete training trips, operational funds to assist with annual budgetary needs, and more. A sports program endowment can be established through a gift of $100,000 or more.  For more information, please contact Corey Aronstam, Director of Development for Athletics at 212-851-7458 or ca2433@columbia.edu
