Bill Fox 79G was an extraordinary man whose profound compassion and generosity had a transformative effect on his students, colleagues, and friends. His legacy lives on in the lives of the countless people, like you, that he influenced as an administrator, mentor and friend. To ensure that his legacy lives on through Emory College students today, we are creating a scholarship in his memory. Our goal is to raise $3 million in support from those who loved Bill and who believe in the importance of access to an Emory education.
Bill was wholly devoted to the people and institutions of Emory University. You sensed in him someone who genuinely cared about your well-being and was invested in your personal and professional life. For many students and alumni, Bill Fox was Emory.
“Bill represented the heart of Emory University. Anyone who knew Bill came to know his warm heart, his big laugh, his contagious enthusiasm, and his genuine interest. Bill cared deeply about what his friends were doing, and he had a wide circle of friends and confidantes. You always knew that you had Bill in your corner. When Bill was talking with you, it was as if the sun was shining on only you."

In 2012, Emory College of Arts and Sciences received one of the largest gifts in its history—a $50 million matching grant to create endowed scholarships. With this generous anonymous match, all contributions to the Bill Fox Scholarship Endowment will be matched two dollars to one. Bill built relationships that spanned generations at Emory; we can ensure that legacy will thrive through the future Bill Fox Scholars.
Make a gift to the Bill Fox Scholarship Endowment today.
