As we continue to monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak, many members of the Fordham community—alumni, friends, and parents—have asked how they can help those students impacted by things like campus closures and unforeseen financial hardship. 

For this reason, we have created the Fordham University Student Emergency Fund. This fund will offer supplemental financial assistance to qualifying students—100% of all gifts will support our students’ most pressing needs as they adapt to this new world we have all found ourselves in. 

Contributions to the Fordham University Student Emergency Fund will aid these 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. 

Please consider making a gift to the Fordham University Student Emergency Fund and supporting our students during this unprecedented time. All gifts to the Student Emergency Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000, thanks to the generosity of Fordham's Board of Trustees. 

The Fordham community is strong and resilient. We know we will all support each other however we can.
