The Daemen faculty and staff (past or present) are some of the college’s greatest advocates by supporting and promoting the values of Daemen College.

Our faculty and staff dedicate their work to improving the lives of our students and strengthening the college. The annual Faculty and Staff Campaign is another opportunity to ensure the continued success of Daemen College. By extending contributions to include Daemen, you are expressing your belief in the mission of the school by continuing our culture of excellence.
When you make a gift to the Daemen Fund, in any amount, this demonstrates to the community about your commitment to the college and the students. Every gift, of any size, helps Daemen continue to thrive; what matters is your participation.  

Gifts to the Daemen Annual Fund support:

  • Financial aid and scholarships to attract and retain the best and brightest students
  • Academic program enhancements
  • Technology upgrades to complement the academic programs
  • Faculty pursuits that maintain Daemen’s top-tier reputation
  • Competitive student internships and career opportunities
