Reasons to Give


Believe it or not, tuition does not provide all of the support necessary to fully operate the School. This gap is bridged by the generous support of our alumni, students, and friends, and is a necessary source of income that enables the Law School to sustain its excellence.

The Student Giving Campaign is an opportunity for students to give back to Fordham Law School. The Campaign establishes a tradition of philanthropy and helps maintain the exceptional legal education that Fordham Law School provides by giving current and future students the same opportunities and benefits that you received while at Fordham Law.

Gifts from the Student Giving Campaign are directed to the Law Annual Fund.  The Annual Fund provides unrestricted support to every facet of educating and assisting Fordham Law Students, and the fiscal flexibility of the Annual Fund allows us to support the School where it is needed most.

The Law Annual Fund supports priorities and initiatives that make your school experience memorable, including:
  • Career and employment services
  • Centers and institutes 
  • Public service projects and fellowships
  • Scholarships
  • Scholarly research
  • Student journals
  • Student teams
  • Technology

Excellence in these areas sets Fordham Law apart, and the Annual Fund makes that excellence possible.

A Student for the Fordham Law Fund:

  • Preserves the Fordham Law experience for future students.
  • Maintains the value of the Fordham Law degree.
  • Helps Fordham Law meet its challenges as an institution.
  • Contributes to Fordham Law’s excellence.
  • Builds a lifelong relationship with Fordham Law.
