Help Us Change the World, One Student at a Time

Since 1841, Fordham has had a proud tradition of opening its doors to promising students of modest means. With the Faith & Hope campaign, we propose to raise $175 million to ensure that Fordham’s long maroon line continues to include the sons and daughters of every class, race, and creed.

Your help in increasing financial aid funding will:

  • Make Fordham more affordable for talented students with limited financial resources
  • Help us compete for the best and brightest undergraduate and graduate students
  • Reduce overall student indebtedness at graduation
  • Preserve operating revenue to enhance academic program quality
The median Fordham student debt is $25,000.
