President's Circle

President Conway-Turner embraces a donor.

Our Most Ardent Supporters

The President’s Circle is Buffalo State’s most select group of committed supporters.

President’s Circle members set the standard for annual contributions to Buffalo State through their foresight and generous giving, and the college proudly recognizes their leadership support. The President’s Circle was established to recognize those who make annual gifts of $1,500 or more.

We invite you to join this visionary group of leadership donors who share a commitment to Buffalo State’s mission of providing a high-quality education while maintaining access for all deserving students. Please contact us to learn more!
