Athletics

GOAL: $30 million

In varsity athletics and club sports, Fordham’s student-athletes live out the Ignatian goal of developing the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Our student-athletes are academic achievers, they are leaders in issues of campus diversity, and they seize opportunities for engagement and professional experience in New York City. Through our campaign, we will do more for our student-athletes, set the Victory Bell ringing, and reignite Ram spirit on campus. .

Our foremost priority is investing in the men’s and women’s basketball teams and discovering just how much glory they can bring to the University with the right support. We will also invest in intramural sports, sports medicine, strength and conditioning, and health and wellness for all our student-athletes to show them a level of care equal to their passion and commitment.

Investment areas include:

  • Men’s and women’s basketball
  • Varsity athletic weight room
  • Sports medicine
  • Athletic operations
  • Intramural sports
  • Health and wellness
