Enabling Student-Athletes' Academic Success

Columbia Athletics provides tutoring services to all of our 800+ student-athletes. We are looking to raise $20,000 for tutoring with this project, which covers 500 hours of tutoring, or about 20% of our total budget. Jackie Blackett has been synonymous with academic support for our student-athletes, and this project is in her honor. Tutoring is one of the many initiatives and resources funded through The Fund for Excellence. Your gift to The Fund for Excellence will support tutoring and the many other needs of our student-athletes. 


This project ends at midnight on Columbia Giving Day, 10/26/16.
