Thanks to wonderful examples set by philanthropists like Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, the concept of giving has become core to an individual’s identity. Donors are not waiting until retirement to start thinking about philanthropy, but are making it a much more meaningful part of their lives earlier than previous generations.
How can you do something that might be, for you, equally consequential?
We suggest you consider a gift to St. Bonaventure University’s endowment. Income from the endowment enhances the student experience for all those who live and learn at St. Bonaventure.
There are a variety of options that are available to meet your financial and philanthropic goals, while continuing to provide security to your family.
In the endowment fund, the principal is protected and only a small amount of the earned income (an average of 5 percent at St. Bonaventure) is used to help with current expenses.
Those funds are vital for providing student scholarships, faculty support, capital needs and operations as needed. Growing the endowment also supports Franciscan heritage and values as well as student extracurricular activities and our beautiful campus infrastructure.
