Fordham Law Nears Goal With New Gifts

At the midpoint in its $100 million fund-raising drive, Dean William Treanor of the Fordham University School of Law announced yesterday the largest single alumni gifts in its history: $5 million each from T.J. Maloney (class of 1979), president of the private equity investment firm Lincolnshire Management, and Thomas A. Moore (1972), a senior partner at Kramer, Dillof, Livingston & Moore. Mr. Treanor said the new gifts, which bring the total collected so far to $74 million, "represent a profound commitment to Fordham Law School and demonstrate the importance of philanthropy during a time of financial uncertainty." Fordham Law's fund-raising drive, among the largest in U.S. legal education, will support new centers and a new building. The fund-raising drive began with the school's centennial in 2005 and ends in 2013. The next event is set for tomorrow evening, with dinner at the New York Public Library. - Thomas Adcock
