graduation day

Be a Part of Something BIG

There is no greater honor than to help someone achieve a dream! For many Columbia State students, the idea of going to college is exactly that and the idea of graduating is an even bigger dream. Yet we all know that our entire community thrives when our people are ready to face the challenges of an ever-changing workplace.

The 2013-2014 Annual Fund Campaign is underway and the investment that you make today is an investment in our collective futures. The difference you make in the life of the student you will help to sponsor is a life-changing forever moment. We know that the student you help now will work hard to make you proud of them. Someday, they will be in a position to pay it forward.
