Charter Day 2020

Honoring the Students and Alumni of Fairleigh Dickinson University on the Front Lines of the Fight Against COVID-19

This year, more than ever before, the need for scholarship support for the students of Fairleigh Dickinson University is critical. Every gift supports our talented and determined students as they work toward their dreams. Each gift is an investment in our shared future.

Because, like the rest of us, our students find themselves in extraordinary and difficult circumstances, all funds raised during Virtual Charter Day 2020 will assist students and families who have suffered financial hardship during this global health crisis and need assistance to cover the cost of attending FDU.
