Annual Giving


All. Together. Now.


This is Barnard’s moment—join us and show your commitment!

Since tuition covers only a portion of the true cost of a Barnard education, annual gifts provide critical funding for all the programs, activities, and services that enhance educational and student life at the College. Annual gifts impact every aspect of our campus and the student experience, every day. They bolster what is important about Barnard in areas including financial aid, student travel and internships, scholarly research, faculty-student research collaborations, career development programs, and a vibrant campus life. In short, these programs help us fulfill our mission to provide the highest quality liberal arts education to promising and determined young women.

Annual giving affirms the value of a Barnard education. It is a key indicator of institutional health and an essential component of the College’s fiscal and intellectual future. A robust annual giving program—with strong alumnae participation rates and increasing levels of giving—sustains our daily work. It helps secure a broad foundation of support for Barnard that will provide for today’s needs as well as the future’s.

Annual Giving is an important priority of The Bold Standard / A Campaign for Barnard. For all who take pride in the education they, their daughters, or other family members received, this is the moment to invest in Barnard and to strengthen the College for today’s students.
