Since its humble beginnings in 1841, Fordham has grown as a result of the collective vision of its leaders, the generous support of alumni and friends, and the creativity and hard work of its faculty and students.
Alumni volunteers are spearheading the fundraising effort. James E. Buckman, Esq., FCRH ’66, Darlene Luccio Jordan, FCRH ’89, and John P. Kehoe, FCRH ’60, FCLC ’85, are co-chairs of the campaign. Dozens of other alumni are helping to lead committees to support individual campaigns for facilities, athletics, WFUV (90.7 FM), and the University’s schools and colleges.
All gifts, no matter what the size, are counted toward the campaign. And all those who make a gift will play an important role in bringing Fordham and its students to a new level of capability and quality.
Christopher Fitzmaurice is a 1984 alumnus of Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business.
“The Fordham business story is such a great story to tell,” said Fitzmaurice, who credits his GSB education for helping him earn a job at Salomon Brothers the summer after graduation. “The momentum of the business school is incredible under the leadership of Dean Rapaccioli. To be able to go out and tell that story to get more people to invest in the passion for that, it’s just a real pleasure.”
