The Fordham Observer

This campaign ended on December 31, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Fordham University by clicking here!

The Observer is Fordham Lincoln Center's award-winning, 100% student-run newspaper. Our student editors generate, pitch, and assign story ideas to their section's staff writers, who research, conduct interviews, and write pieces for our bi-weekly print publication. We also post all stories to our website, as well as a pdf compilation of the current issue, so that those far from campus can view what the print issue looks like. This year, we're making some big changes to our digital and multimedia efforts. We've launched a biweekly podcast, Retrospect, are working on redesigning our website and hope to expand our multimedia coverage for online and social platforms.

Your contributions help keep us running smoothly. We use your generous donations to pay for the publication of our printed paper, our Adobe Creative Cloud subscription that we use to design said paper, our top-notch advisors, Molly Bedford of The New York Times and Anthony Hazell, a former Observer Editor-in-Chief, and any new equipment we might need to effectively create quality journalistic content.

Thank you so much in advance for your donation! We really appreciate your help in keeping student journalism at Fordham alive. Happy Holidays!
