Memorial Giving

There are gifts that take on special meaning and memorial or tribute givers enjoy knowing their action will live on for future generations.  Gifts to Daemen University may take many forms and serve many purposes, including honoring someone you love or expressing yourself when words just don’t seem enough. Gifts can also be made to honor anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, or other special events.

The gifts we receive “in memory of” or “in honor of” provide an important source of financial support each year. These contributions make many programs, services, and scholarships possible for our students.

“Whether you knew it as Rosary Hill or Daemen University, the University 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 University continues to be a living and learning environment for tomorrow’s leaders.”

Giving by Bequest

Many people don’t think of their will when considering a gift to Daemen University, but giving by bequest is another thoughtful way to support the institution.  Bequests can be specified as memorial gifts when you create your will or you may have your attorney revise your will or add a codicil to include a memorial or honor gift.

Endowed Scholarships

Naming an endowed scholarship at Daemen University allows your investment to benefit deserving Daemen students for generations to come.
