Many members of the Fordham community have asked how they can help our students who are facing financial difficulties because of the war in Ukraine. 

For this reason, we have created the Fordham Ukraine Crisis Student Support Fund. 

This fund will help Fordham students from Ukraine or Russia who are facing new uncertainties and unexpected costs due to the conflict. Your entire donation will go toward their most pressing needs, such as meals, housing, emergency health care, travel funding, tuition assistance, and more.

Trustee Fellow Kim Bepler will match all gifts to the Ukraine Crisis Student Support Fund dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. Please join her in supporting this initiative. Your gift will provide vital resources and peace of mind for these students during this difficult time.

If you or a student you know are seeking funding, please contact Brian Ghanoo, assistant vice president, Office of Student Financial Services. He can be reached at (718) 817-3811 or

Thank you for your kindness and for caring for your Fordham brothers and sisters at a time of need.
