The College of Arts & Sciences is preparing for this year’s Giving Day, Wednesday, March 16 — a day to show your support for our faculty and students. We hope you’ll join in the fun!

Last year 1,642 donors joined together to raise more than $1.25 million for the College on Giving Day. This year, we have a goal of raising $1.3 million from 1,750 donors.

Your gift allows the College to fulfill its mission so that our students can do the greatest good in the world and contribute to our society in meaningful and lasting ways.

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, parents and friends, the College of Arts & Sciences Annual Fund helps us recruit and retain faculty as they pursue frontline research and mentor our undergraduates. It also helps us expand our support for first-generation students and increase student opportunities for advising, research and career experiences.

Your gift to the Cornell Promise Annual Fund Scholarships for Arts & Sciences allows us to offer critically important support to more than 2,000 students each year and helps us meet the financial aid commitment we make to our increasingly diverse student body.

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 great impact:

  • Alex ’87 and Laura ’87 Hanson have pledged to match the first $175,000 in gifts to the College of Arts & Sciences Annual Fund
  • Kimberly Anast ’01 has pledged to match the first $25,000 in gifts to the Cornell Promise Annual Fund Scholarships for Arts & Sciences
  • Dale S. Rosenthal ’78 has offered an additional challenge for students and young alumni.

Take a look at all of the challenges taking place throughout the day to find out how your gift could be the one to unlock additional Giving Day Challenge funds.

On Wednesday, March 16, join the Cornell community to make a difference for students on Cornell Giving Day.

Give to the Language Resource Center on March 16!

Can’t wait until Giving Day? You can donate now to the Lisa Sansoucy Language Scholar Award by visiting this page. This award offers financial assistance to a student who excels in language learning. It is named in memory of our friend and colleague Lisa Sansoucy, who passed away in December of 2021. Lisa worked at the Language Resource Center for over 7 years. She was a devoted Cornellian, having received her master of science in political science and government in 1999. Her vast knowledge of Cornell resources, procedures, and people was a tremendous asset for our language community. Lisa excelled at forming and cultivating relationships with students and faculty. As a lifelong learner, she shared her love and passion for language study with everyone she worked with.
