Annual gifts of all amounts provide unrestricted, flexible funding to ensure Fordham can meet the evolving needs on campus. With your help, we can meet the demands and challenges of today's rapidly changing educational environment and empower students to succeed.
Insufficient financial aid is the most frequently cited reason admitted students choose not to attend Fordham. 65 percent of undergraduates demonstrate financial need, and currently, we are able to fully meet that need for only 30 percent. Moreover, while federal and state aid help bridge the gap, the median student debt for Fordham graduates is $25,000 upon graduation. Large amounts of debt discourage graduates from pursuing careers in education, social services, and the public sector—professions with the greatest need for men and women for others.
