CI Announces $5 Million Endowment Campaign

March 7, 2013 - At Community Impact’s Gala on March 7, 2013, Philip Milstein, Vice Chair of the Columbia University Trustees and a longtime CI supporter, officially announced our first Endowment Campaign. Community Impact is building a $5 million endowment that will provide a steady source of revenue for our programs and allow us to do more with more! Through support from the endowment, we will enhance our services, increase volunteer training, build on our evaluations efforts, and improve outreach to our many community members. We are pleased to have raised more than $2 million for the endowment to date. We hope that all of our alumni and supporters will become part of this historic campaign as we secure the remaining $2.9 million.

Your support will ensure that our 900 volunteers from Columbia University and Barnard College can continue to deliver educational and social service programs to 8,000 low-income people in Upper Manhattan each year. This will strengthen Community Impact as the bridge between Columbia and the community.
