Flexible Endowed Scholarship

By setting up a flexible endowed scholarship, you can see the benefits of your generosity now. A flexible endowed scholarship is a combination of a planned gift and an annual gift. Every year, you donate a specified amount, usually the interest to be generated by the endowment’s eventual worth. The endowment itself is deferred until it can be fulfilled with a planned gift.

For more information, please call the Buffalo State College Foundation at (716) 878-4658
