I am delighted to tell you that the Fordham community raised more than $49 million in the 2012 fiscal year (from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012).
This extraordinary total brought Excelsior | Ever Upward | The Campaign for Fordham to $448 million, putting us $52 million away from reaching our campaign goal. That number has since risen to $485.1 million.
But we cannot rest on our laurels. With your continued help, we seek to raise additional funds to support our unmet needs in endowed professorships and several crucial building projects.
On behalf of a very grateful University, I thank you. At no time have the collective efforts of the Fordham family paid off more handsomely than during the past year.
Joseph M. McShane, S.J.
