About

Fordham’s Jesuit teachings encourage us to strive for magis

Seeking magis—Latin for “more” or “greater”—means putting our imaginations to work for the good of the world. It means learning to be more magnanimous toward others and more generous with our talents and gifts. 

In the spirit of magis, we invite the entire Fordham family to imagine more. 

This Fordham Giving Day, change the world through Fordham and support the causes that matter. Whether it’s for diversity and inclusion, access to education, career preparation, mental health services, or something else—you can give toward any Fordham priority that you can imagine.

Even if you can’t give, you can still make an impact. Share your Fordham stories using the hashtag #FordhamGivingDay and you may be one of 10 selected to award $200 toward a Fordham area of your choice.

Thank you for your support and involvement during Fordham Giving Day and beyond!
