Daemen Fund

The Daemen Fund (Annual Fund) assists the College by narrowing the financial gap that exists each year to educate our students.

Your annual support allows Daemen to ensure that higher education is not a luxury reserved for only the wealthy. With your help, we can continue to offer more than a degree, but a well rounded education to each of our students. Private donations from parents, friends and alumni like you have supplemented student tuition for decades.

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS. EVERY SINGLE GIFT IS WELCOME AND MEANINGFUL.

Class Year Appeal:

By incorporating their graduation year into the appeal, this plan allowed a relatively small class to make quite a substantial gift to the college.

For example: The class of 1959 could committed to contributing $59 this year and pledging $59 for next year. The class consisted of nearly 40 reuniting members so that two year pledge helped secure nearly $5,000 for student scholarships.

Founders Walkway:

Many affinity groups enjoy raising funds to honor or memorialize a special event, person or group. The Founders Walkway, located on the landscaped lawn of Rosary Hall, allows your group to purchase a brick, have it inscribed with special sentiments and place it permanently on Daemen’s Campus.

Funding a Special Project:

Sometimes a reuniting group would like to help fund the purchase of a specific item the College is in need of as identified by the College. An example of this initiative would be the generous class of 1952 and the new Daemen College sign displayed at the Main Street entrance to the College.
