The Gabelli School Centennial Campaign
Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business has the opportunity to lead the global business community into the future and create a sustainable pathway for humanity.
During its first 100 years, the Gabelli School built its reputation by driving the ethical and sustainable business practices that became the core of smart business creation and management. The Centennial Campaign will position the Gabelli School of Business to pioneer and disseminate sustainable practices throughout the global business arena.
To realize this vision, the Centennial Campaign has a $75 million goal, and is built on three pillars:
1. Recruiting a Diverse and Creative Student Body
New scholarship funding will attract the most driven, capable students, fostering the diversity of thought and talent needed to generate original solutions to 21st-century business challenges.
2. Pioneering Research That Informs Business
Additional funding will empower our faculty and student researchers to create and share innovative, sustainable business practices.
3. Offering a Compelling, Relevant Global Curriculum
Funding for continuous curricular and co-curricular design—informed by industry partnerships and Fordham’s alumni network—will ensure that our students achieve the most desirable, impactful postgraduate outcomes.
Centennial Campaign Matching Gift Opportunities
A $35 Million gift made by Mario Gabelli, BS ’65, and his wife Regina Pitaro, FCRH ’76—the largest in Fordham’s history—brings us nearly half-way to our Centennial Campaign goal. Gifts made to the Centennial Challenge will provide scholarships for MBA and PhD students, and will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $7 Million from this generous gift.
Additionally, as co-chairs of the Gabelli School Centennial Campaign, Christopher, GABELLI '84, and Alison Fitzmaurice have graciously offered to inspire new President's Club level scholarship donors by doubling the impact of gifts of $1,000. First time, outright gifts of $1,000 or more to the Undergraduate Current Use Scholarship Fund or the Graduate Current Use Scholarship Fund will unlock a matching gift, up to a total of $100,000.
