Jubilee Weekend Raises More Than $9.7 Million

More than 1,700 alumni and guests gathered at Fordham's three campuses last June to celebrate class reunions, raising more than $10 million in gifts for the University.

A record turnout of more than 1,100 alumni and guests donated $9.7 million during the annual Jubilee Weekend at the Rose Hill campus June 3 through 5. The Golden Ram's Dinner on Friday and Saturday's Gala dinner attracted the highest number of Fordham graduates in Jubilee history. Fordham's department of alumni relations awarded the class of 1955 for having the highest percentage of donors, most president's club members and the largest gift amount raised. The class of 1965 won the largest class in attendance at the galas held under a tent on Edwards Parade.

Fordham College at Lincoln Center welcomed 414 alumni and guests to the Manhattan campus on June 10 for the 5th Annual Alumni Reunion, which raised more than $200,000 for the University. Two hundred and seventy-two alumnae and guests attended the annual reunion weekend at the Marymount campus June 10 through 12, and donated $108,699.
