Presidents' Club

With immense gratitude, Fordham Prep acknowledges those who give $3,500 and above annually with membership in the Presidents' Club. Membership includes an invitation to a dinner held each September at the Water Club in Manhattan, early notification about Fordham Prep events, and news regarding the school.

Gifts at the Presidents' Club level and above are vital to the financial stability of the Prep. They provide unrestricted operating reserves to enable us to take advantage of strategic opportunities as they arise which has a tremendous impact on Fordham Prep students.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How important is my participation?
The participation rate of those who contribute to the school's annual fundraising effort is an important measure used by foundations and other grant-giving institutions in dispensing grant funding. It is also a good tool to measure how pleased alumni are with their high school experience and how happy parents are with the education and guidance that Fordham Prep has provided for their sons.

Why should I contribute?
Your gift to The Annual Fund helps keep tuition increases to a minimum by providing much-needed financial aid to ensure that these increases do not become a burden to those students who most need it. It also supports the budgets for many valuable programs on campus that make the Fordham Prep experience unique. We invite you to take part in this important tradition, by helping the current generation of students benefit from the Jesuit, Catholic education that the Prep provides.

How will I be contacted?
We will contact you throughout the fiscal year (July 1- June 30) about The Annual Fund by mail, phone, and e-mail.
