Empowering Student Success with Gifts that Make a Lasting Impact

For sixty-two 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.

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 years into the future.

Student Impact

Benjamin Weidman (Honors, Safety & Occupational Health Applied Sciences) – “Now in my junior year, I am the President of Habitat for Humanity, the conference chairman for ASSE, and an alternative break leader. I am continuing to pursue my passion in safety and I am taking a graduate level course this semester. This scholarship truly has an amazing impact on my experience here at Keene State College…”

Sarah Otterbeck (Secondary Education & Mathematics) – “I am a double major of secondary education and mathematics and I plan on going for a minor in statistics… I want to help young people, I feel like being a teacher is the way for me to do that… Money is tight for many people but because there are people who are willing to give back, people like me can continue to study and become an active part of our society. I am very grateful for your kindness; your generosity will be put to good use.”

Changing Lives over the Long Term

By establishing or donating to an endowed fund, you ensure that your gift will have an impact years into the future. Endowed scholarships provide financial assistance to students every year in perpetuity. Donations to endowed funds help students attain a first-rate education and then go on to make a difference in the world. Make a contribution, and you contribute to the greater good.
