Say Yes Buffalo Embarks on $100 Million Scholarship Endowment Campaign
The Say Yes Buffalo partnership has embarked on a five-year, $100 million endowment campaign — a quest anchored by an anonymous, $25 million challenge gift from an individual donor.
The terms of the gift require that at least $25 million be matched by local donors and the remaining $50 million be matched by a combination of local and state supporters, among others, by 2023.
As Alphonso O’Neil White, Chair of the Say Yes Buffalo Scholarship Board, put it: “We are hopeful that with this incredible $25 million gift, coupled with the support of our more than 400 donors, we have the momentum needed to reach this new goal. It is an exciting moment for the future of postsecondary education of Buffalo youth.”
