Faith and Hope, The Campaign for Financial Aid Spring Signpost

The Campaign for Financial Aid


We did it. Through Faith & Hope | The Campaign for Financial Aid, we united to raise $175,311,288 for Fordham students, surpassing our $175 million goal.

Together we transformed the lives of countless students—past, present, and future—making a Fordham education more accessible to those with limited financial resources.

And it’s all thanks to you, the thousands of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who supported this historic campaign.

Your gifts, large and small, have helped Fordham ...

  • Create 197 scholarship funds for students, including Fulbright scholars, community leaders, and first-generation college students
  • Establish the of the Maurice and Carolyn Cunniffe Presidential Scholars Program
  • Reduce overall student debt upon graduation
  • And much more.
