Excelsior | Ever Upward | The Campaign for Fordham

Thank you! Thanks to the generosity of more than 60,000 alumni and friends, we are proud to announce the successful completion of our half-billion-dollar campaign.

Fordham launched Excelsior | Ever Upward | The Campaign for Fordham to raise $500 million to help lift Fordham into the ranks of the nation’s preeminent educational institutions.

It was the most ambitious and daring fundraising campaign in our history but together we raised $540 million, transforming the University and enriching the lives of our students.

Your generosity has allowed Fordham to increase endowed chairs and scholarships, expand academic and programmatic initiatives, and build much-needed facilities including:

  • world-class residence halls for 800-plus students
  • the iconic new Fordham Law School building
  • the new home of the Gabelli School of Business
