Giving Tuesday - Make Your Gift Count & Support CCF

On Giving Tuesday, make your gift count - support Columbus Citizens Foundation’s medical school scholarships.

This year, our Giving Tuesday campaign is focused on the community that helped us through the pandemic - our doctors and nurses. They have saved countless lives, all the while standing on the frontlines risking their own.

Your support on Giving Tuesday will help CCF provide aspiring medical students the opportunity to reach their educational and professional goals.

Give Today

All donors who support us at a $500 or more level on Giving Tuesday will receive an Italian city Swatch watch.
