Keene Endowment Association – Empowering student success with gifts that make a lasting impact
For sixty-three years, The Keene Endowment Association (KEA) has developed and overseen an investment portfolio of endowed funds to provide scholarships and support programs in perpetuity by making awards from interest payouts. We invite alumni and friends of the College to invest through gifts to the endowment, which includes a portfolio of Sustainable and Responsible Investments.
Introduced in 2016, the option for Sustainable & Responsible Investing (SRI) was created for donors who want their funds to be invested in undervalued, high-quality companies that provide long-term competitive financial returns as well as a positive impact in the communities and environments in which they operate.
Make a Difference
Your gift will change lives and make a difference to Keene State students today and for future generations through an endowed gift! Donate to an existing gift fund OR create a new fund to ensure that your gift will have an impact for years into the future. View more facts about the KEA.
The Keene Endowment Association (KEA) Board of Trustees established this scholarship as a way to express their commitment to the education of Keene State College students.
Created in memory of Dr. Gary Bonitatibus, Professor of Psychology at Keene State College for thirty years. The fund provides scholarships for students who have declared a major or minor in Psychology.
A group of engaged CALL program (Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning) participants initiated this scholarship in thanks for the "great deal" they received at Keene State College. In turn, they wish to assist current KSC undergraduate students in need of financial aid.
