Fordham COVID-19 Response Efforts

This campaign ended on December 31, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Fordham University by clicking here!

Fordham’s COVID-19 response has taken many forms. If you have the means, we hope you will consider a contribution to any of these COVID-19 related areas: 

  • The Student Emergency Fund aids current students’ as they confront travel expenses, sudden loss of housing, medical emergencies or mental health crises, temporary loss of income, short-term food needs, and much more. Your gift will provide peace of mind for many students facing great uncertainty. 
  • The COVID-19 Research Fund will allow Fordham faculty to advance critical research related to the basic biology, pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19.
  • As always, financial aid remains a priority—90% of our students receive assistance with tuition. And in this time of great uncertainty, Scholarship Support matters to current and future students more than ever.
  • Contributions to Counseling and Psychological Services will help our mental health center continue to provide services to our community via phone and video.  
  • Support any School Fund to assist with their individual COVID-19-related priorities.  
  • Your support—at any level—to the Fordham Fund allows us to continue distributing funds where they are most urgently needed.

The past few months have brought on hardships. But we are grateful that the Fordham community is uniquely positioned to confront some of these global challenges. Remaining men and women for others is core to our values and will stay that way through the years to come. Thank you for your support.
