Cornell Giving Day is a 24-hour marathon of generosity, fun, and Big Red spirit. On 3/12, join your Cornell community to make a difference for students, Cornell, and the world in just a single day. On Giving Day, you have the power to create big change as your gifts combine with thousands of others. And with gift matches and unlocking challenges running all day long, every dollar you give goes even further. Save the date to meet goals and break records, fund the areas you love at Cornell, and leave the world just a little better than you found it!
On Saturday, January 11, Alumni and families met at The Teacher’s Desk in Buffalo, to sort and organize school supplies for local teachers, as part of the annual Cornell Cares Day. At The Teacher’s Desk, teachers “shop” for free for school supplies for their students in need.

Per tradition, Buffalo-area CAAAN (Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network) volunteers and all interested alumni of Cornell are invited to our annual CAAAN Kick-Off Dinner, to be held at Chef’s Restaurant in downtown Buffalo on Wednesday, November 13 at 6pm. While enjoying your choice of Chef’s delicious Italian specialties, you will have the chance to learn more about the CAAAN program (the program wherein alumni meet and talk with prospective students about the Cornell experience) while meeting other alumni and learning more about the Cornell admissions process.
Many alumni attest that their role as a CAAAN volunteer is one of the most rewarding activities one can do as a Cornellian!
For those who are new to the CAAAN program, please be sure to sign-up today at their website.
The cost for the dinner is $10 per person, and will include a selection of a main dish with salad, dessert, tea, and coffee. A cash bar will be available. Attendees have the choice of pre-ordering chicken cacciatore, lasagna with meat ball, or Chef’s famous spaghetti parmesan. Please register in advance.
