About

Today is Marymount College’s Giving Day! Support the Marymount Legacy Fund and you will sustain the legacy of our alma mater, provide educational access to deserving students, and honor the efforts of all the R.S.H.M. who devoted their lives to our betterment and education. 

Marymount Giving Day will last 1,907 minutes in honor of our founding year of 1907. Please consider a fitting gift in the amount of $1,907, $190.70, or $19.07 to the Marymount Legacy Fund. 

Our goal is to raise $3,814 — double the number of our founding year. If we reach this goal, we will unlock an additional $1,907 from the Alumnae Board. Thank you for all you do to help our younger Marymount sisters studying at Fordham and for keeping the Marymount spirit alive!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Marymount Legacy Fund? The Marymount Legacy Fund is an endowed scholarship at Fordham University, in recognition of the Centennial of Marymount College in 2007 and to honor the alumnae, faculty, staff, and R.S.H.M. of Marymount.

The goal of the endowed fund is to preserve the Marymount name and tradition of excellence set forth by Mother Butler in helping to educate and shape female undergraduates at Fordham University. The fund aims to honor and continue the mission of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary who founded Marymount in 1907. 

Who benefits from my donation? Your younger sisters! The Marymount Legacy Fund is designed to support young women who:

  • Embody the Marymount spirit through learning and leadership;
  • Have a family affiliation with any of the Marymount secondary schools or colleges; and
  • Demonstrate financial need and academic merit.

It has benefitted over a dozen talented young people over the years. This year there are two scholarship recipients.
