Fashion for Philanthropy, a club at Fordham University, works to promote interest and knowledge of the fashion industry and its various components. FFP seeks to use the medium of self-expression, a fundamental element of fashion, to express the Jesuit ideals of social responsibility and creative individuality.
Throughout the year, Fashion for Philanthropy hosts several events focusing on the different aspects of fashion whether it be through television, business, modeling, or design. Fashion for Philanthropy strives to expose students to current issues and trends within the industry. The Jesuit philosophy of being men and women for others has inspired the club to donate its proceeds to different philanthropic organizations. Funds generated at events are given to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Metro New York; they in turn use the proceeds to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
