Calling All Fordham Volunteers!

Fordham University’s motto “Men and Women for Others” inspires countless students, faculty and staff members to volunteer their time for charitable causes.
Now we’ve got a chance to show the rest of New York City just how charitable they are.

According to Sandra Lobo Jost, director of Fordham’s Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice, the University has joined the Mayor’s College Challenge Initiative, which is a competition between New York City universities and colleges to see who can rack up the most service hours.

“Anyone who is volunteering for a non-profit 501(c)(3) within New York City can log into the mayor's website, create and account and register their hours, which is then recorded on the website instantly,” she said.

“I believe Fordham could easily rise to the top of the list (we are number 9 right now), if we could only get the word out to the Fordham family and get them to log on their hours!”

The challenge runs through March 30. For more information, visit or contact Sandra Lobo Jost at 718-817-4510
