Message from the Vice President for Institutional Advancement

A Donation Today, A Vote of Confidence in Tomorrow.

Craig A. Harris
Vice President For Institutional Advancement 

Giving back is a gracious, time-honored tradition that pays dividends on many fronts – benefiting both the thoughtful donor and the beneficiary of the donor’s generosity. As a not-for-profit institution, Daemen College gratefully welcomes philanthropic gifts , in various forms, to advance our educational mission. A strong financial foundation portends great things for a great college.    

Gifts to Daemen include annual, capital, and planned giving efforts. All gifts and grants are directed to the college’s development office. There they are officially accepted, acknowledged, and administered, pursuant to the policies of the Board of Trustees.  

Giving to Daemen may take the form of cash, appreciated securities, and deferred or planned gifts, including trusts, annuities, retirement funds, insurance policies and real property, among other vehicles.

Endowment gifts may be used to establish a special endowment fund at Daemen. These can be Named Endowments for specified academic departments; an Endowed Chair – to attract and sustain a distinguished scholar; or a Named Endowment Scholarship.  

Whatever form your gift giving may take, the big picture is priceless: knowing you’re helping to sustain and grow the vitality, viability and vision of Daemen College. We are not without a sense of pragmatism: financial strength is imperative if a great academic institution is to continue to remain great. By the same token, donors themselves can put themselves in favorable tax positions while simultaneously taking pride in being a part of Daemen College’s continuing excellence into the future.

Your donation today is truly a vote of confidence in tomorrow.

Making An Impact

“Whether you knew it as Rosary Hill or Daemen College, the College still offers students the same world of opportunity that guided us on our way. It was there that I developed the leadership skills I later called on to shape my career with the federal government. Now, I’m doing what I can to give back, so that Daemen College continues to be a living and learning environment for tomorrow’s leaders.” - Kathleen McCarthy '60 Charter Member, The M. Angela Canavan, OSF Legacy Society.
