Giving Day Regional Chapter Challenge

Introducing the first-ever Fordham Giving Day: Regional Chapter Challenge!

During Fordham Giving Day 2019, the regional alumni chapter that exceeds their goal by the highest percentage will win a free happy hour!

Participation in the Regional Chapter Challenge is simple! When a donor makes their gift on the Fordham Giving Day page, they will have the option to indicate with which Fordham chapter they are affiliated. A leaderboard will demonstrate results in real time. The Fordham Giving Day team will alert the winning chapter leader following the close of the campaign.

A unique donor goal has been calculated for each of Fordham’s regional alumni chapters, based on the size of a chapter's network and the number of donors who generally contribute from that particular area. Donor goals by chapter are listed below.
