Support Arts & Sciences on Giving Day March 14

The College of Arts & Sciences is preparing for Giving Day on Thursday, March 14 and we hope the whole Cornell community can join in to support the work and growth of our students and faculty.

Last year, A&S alumni, parents, students, and friends joined together to raise more than $1.1 million for the College of Arts & Sciences on Giving Day.

Your gift allows the College to fulfill our mission — to prepare our students to do the greatest good in the world. Through their research and creative works, our students and faculty contribute to our society in meaningful and lasting ways.

Your generous support of the College of Arts & Sciences Annual Funds helps us recruit and retain faculty as they pursue frontline research and mentor our undergraduates, and provide needed funding that helps us meet the financial aid commitment we make to our increasingly diverse student body.

Your gifts to Career Development initiatives, including the Career Development and Summer Experience Grant funds, enable undergraduate students to explore their career paths through internship opportunities they may otherwise not be able to finance.

You can also support your favorite department or program on Giving Day. Whether your interest lies in the arts & humanities, social sciences or physical & natural sciences, you can help our departments prepare students to become innovators, entrepreneurs and civic leaders.

And, thanks to several A&S alumni, your gift to the College can have an even greater impact:

  • Alex ’87 and Laura ’87 Hanson have pledged to match the first $200,000 in gifts to the College of Arts & Sciences Annual Fund.
  • Cliff Manko '80 has pledged to match the first $25,000 in gifts to the McGraw Renovation Fund.
  • Mary Armstrong Meduski ’80 has put forth a challenge to increase the number of student and young alumni donors.
  • An anonymous donor will match the first $20,000 in gifts to the Department of Mathematics.

On Thursday, March 14, join the Cornell community to make a difference for students on Cornell Giving Day.
