About

Your Gift Changes Lives.

Your gift makes it possible for Cornell students to have a transformative liberal arts experience in our historic Hilltop community and to engage in life-changing experiential learning opportunities at Cornell and beyond.

Thanks to you $15,000 of gifts during the Lunch Rush were matched, and we received an extra $5,000 for hitting 350 donors by mid-day!


We are just over halfway to our $175,000 goal and at 450/750 donors needed to unlock an additional $15,000. Please continue spreading the word any way that works.
