The COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted the lives of millions of New Yorkers, including our student-athletes and their families. For many, their sports seasons were canceled, commencement postponed, and their college careers cut short. 

The generosity and compassion of the Fordham Ram community has been evident during these challenging times, as many of you have reached out for opportunities to help our student-athletes. In the wake of the current crisis, Fordham Athletics has created the Ramily Fund to assist our student-athletes who are now unexpectedly finding themselves facing financial difficulties. Housing, food, technology, and the many other resources they had at Fordham are now gone. Their classroom, academic and health services, athletic training, and team meetings have all turned virtual. 

This relief fund will provide financial support to the Fordham University student-athletes who have incurred expenses related to the impact of COVID-19. These expenses include but are not limited to,

  • Unplanned travel home
  • Book fees
  • Technology needs
  • Unexpected illnesses within their immediate family
  • Scholarship funding for fifth year of athletic eligibility (for spring sports: baseball, softball, track and field, tennis, rowing)
  • Lack of family income due to unforeseen unemployment 

All gifts to the Ramily Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $200,000, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous Fordham alum. Your gift will provide needed resources to ensure our Ramily is taken care of during this uncertain time. 

You have supported our student-athletes when they are on campus competing for titles, and we are confident our Fordham family will step up and support them while they are temporarily unable to compete. We cannot thank you enough for your loyalty to Fordham Athletics and our student-athletes!
