Why Give to Fordham

When you participate in the tradition of giving, you join a worldwide community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends, who ensure a great Fordham experience for current and future students. Every gift—no matter the size—makes a difference. And every gift counts towards our current capital campaign, Cura Personalis | For Every Fordham Student, at a historic moment in the life of the university.

Areas to Support

  • The Fordham Fund supports Fordham’s greatest needs, such as financial aid, research, academics, internships, student life, and more. A gift to the Fordham Fund is an investment in every aspect of the Fordham experience.

  • Over 85% of students received financial aid, and insufficient financial aid is the most frequently cited reason admitted students choose not to attend Fordham. By increasing access and making Fordham affordable for talented students—regardless of race, class, or socioeconomic standing—we can prepare tomorrow’s leaders.

  • Fordham’s academic culture encourages breadth of learning, critical thinking, a love of service, and personal excellence. Gifts that support academics —through support of any of Fordham’s school funds—enables future leaders to receive a world-class education, attracts high-caliber faculty, and provides the resources for critical research.

  • Your support of any varsity or club sport helps provide Fordham with the resources to build champions in the classroom, in the community, and in the competitive arenas.

  • Student success is dependent on more than grades and credit hours; a holistic approach focuses on health, wellness, and educational programs. Your support of areas like the Career Center, Campus Ministry, or Center for Community Engaged Learning means students have access to the critical resources they need to succeed.

  • Our Jesuit tradition of service and striving for social justice helps us change lives and communities everywhere.
