Give back to support students in the Ailey/Fordham BFA in Dance program!

The Ailey School and Fordham University are partners in a highly innovative BFA program offering the best of two worlds: The artistic pre-eminence of the official school of the world-famous Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, coupled with a liberal arts education rooted in the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence.

Your gift directly supports the merit and need-based Denise Jefferson Memorial Scholarship Fund that supports students in the Ailey/Fordham BFA in Dance program. Over the years, funding has been awarded to dozens of talented dancers enrolled in the program.

Help us unlock a challenge gift from Patricia Dugan Perlmuth, FCLC ’79, who will match all gifts made to the campaign, dollar for dollar, up to $6,250!

 Join us for the annual Ailey/Fordham BFA in Dance Benefit Concert on Monday, April 17 at Ailey Citigroup Theater. To register, visit

THANK YOU for supporting our dance students!
