Cornell Cares Day is January 11, 2020

On Saturday, January 11, 2020, students and alumni around the world will work together on service projects in their hometowns. This event is a great opportunity to give back to your community and build connections with fellow Cornellians.

Although we encourage volunteer events to take place on January 11, alumni clubs are welcome to plan an event on the date that works best for their members and partnering organization.

Get involved

Cornell clubs participating in Cornell Cares Day will share opportunities with members and students in their region via email over winter break. You can also find events in your region by checking this page, which will be updated frequently.

If you are planning to host an event, make sure to tell us by December 15, 2019. Do you have an idea for a service project or nonprofit in your area that would benefit from this day? We want to hear from you! You can make a recommendation below.
