To our extended Fordham family, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy holidays: may you enjoy a new year full of the blessings of family and friends, and faith. We hope you will share those blessings by giving the gift of a Fordham education to promising students by donating to the Financial Aid Campaign.
More than 85 percent of Fordham undergraduates depend upon some form of financial aid to complete their studies. Unfortunately, our need is always greater than our resources—scholarship endowment covers less than 7 percent of Fordham’s scholarship budget. Contributions from you help our most deserving students, supplementing financial aid and allowing them to pursue more research and study abroad opportunities.
Though the University is closed for the Christmas and New Year’s holiday break, development staff will be in the office on Thursday, December 27, and Friday, December 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on Monday, December 31, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to assist you in making an end-of-year gift to Fordham.
You may make a gift online at www.fordham.edu/give prior to midnight on December 31, to ensure that your gift is tax deductible for the 2016 calendar year. For assistance with making a gift to the University, contact the Office of Development at: (212) 636-6550 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Finally, know that we are grateful for all that you do for Fordham. Your investment in our mission transforms lives, and makes the world a better place.
