Photo Essay: Historic Fundraising Campaign Goes Out with a Bang


Historic Fundraising Campaign Goes Out with a Bang

Ten years and an unprecedented $540 million later, the Fordham community rang the closing bell on Excelsior | Ever Upward | The Campaign for Fordham at the Thirteenth Annual Founder’s Award Dinner.

For the announcement, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel’s Grand Ballroom was turned into a theater-in-the-round. At the close of the evening, Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham, surrounded by members of the champion football and women’s basketball teams, led a thousand voices through a rousing rendition of “The Ram,” the University’s fight song.
