We raised a total of $59,949 for Global Cornell from generous alums, friends, students and staff!  We couldn’t have done it without you and we are deeply appreciative. Your generosity will truly help “Bring Cornell to the world, and the world to Cornell.”  Altogether, Cornell brought in $6,969,253.59 from 9,684 donors on the first-ever Giving Day.
