Goal: $70 million | Raised to date: $99.4 million
By endowing a scholarship, you affirm a central ideal of higher education—that the dreams of talented, eager students should not be held back by a lack of funds.
Fordham has a proud tradition of opening its doors to students with great financial need, many of whom were the first in their families to attend college. This tradition continues today, as 90 percent of Fordham students receive some sort of financial aid.
By supporting scholarships, you do more than create opportunity for one student. You strengthen the endowment that is critical to Fordham's future. You enable the University to build a learning environment that is superior because of the diversity and intellectual caliber of students. And you create a legacy by infusing a student's entire undergraduate career with a sense of gratitude. Your gift provides a personal lesson in the value of philanthropy, one that a student will remember for life.
