Gifts of any amount will help students in countless ways by funding scholarships or career services, and improving facilities and technology.
A gift of any amount will put a Fordham education within reach for a deserving undergraduate student. Donors of $1,000 or more automatically become members of the President’s Club. Those who give $5,000 or more per year to a Fordham Fund Scholarship are invited to connect with “their” students at the annual scholarship reception or correspond with them throughout the year.
Pledges of $50,000 or more are payable over a four-year period, and allow a donor to name a non-endowed scholarship fund for the duration of the gift. The fund may be named in honor of a donor, a loved one, or even a reunion class. For their generosity, donors will receive an update on scholarship recipients each year and will be invited to meet them at the annual scholarship reception.
Endowed scholarship funds are invested to generate a permanent stream of annual scholarship grants. Typically 4 to 5 percent of the funds’ market value is spent each year. Excess earnings or capital gains are reinvested in the fund to ensure that the scholarship’s value keeps pace with inflation over time. Donors may express a preference for students enrolled in a specific school or study abroad program, for student athletes, or where the need is greatest.
Endowed scholarship donors receive an update on their scholarship recipients each year and are invited to the annual scholarship reception to meet selected scholarship recipients.
