This will be money well-invested. Since its founding in 1847, The City College of New York (CCNY) has been true to its legacy of access, opportunity, and transformation. 

The Colin Powell School is home to CCNY’s Social Science Departments, as well as the College’s Core Leadership Development and Public Service Programs. With almost 4,000 students, and graduating the most CCNY students annually, the Colin Powell School transforms the nation’s most diverse student body into tomorrow’s global leaders.

We cannot face tomorrow’s challenges without lifting up those who are most poised to lead those challenges.

All too often the talents of our students go undiscovered because of financial and societal constraints. 

With your support, we can change that. By linking leadership skills, engaged scholarship, and the ethic of service, we assist students in identifying their own vision and mission that would take their education to the next step by connecting it with their goals both within and beyond college. 

This spring, your donations to the Colin Powell School can be leveraged to unlock even more resources.
