The library benefits greatly from the
generous support of the following endowments:
Business Endowment -- This fund was established in 1991 by Vincent
and Maryann McKelvey, to be used specifically for acquisitions for
the departments within the School of Business. Both Mr. and
Mrs. McKelvey graduated from St. Bonaventure University's School
of Business: Mr. McKelvey from the Management Sciences
program in 1973 and Mrs. McKelvey from the Accounting program in
M. Farley Gift Fund -- see separate
page for information about Mr. Farley and this fund.
Library Endowment -- Established in 1974 from a bequest of the
estate of Howard J. McCabe, this fund is used to purchase modern
science reference books.
Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant -- Through the
efforts of Dr. Rich Reilly and Dr. Carol Dimminie, who headed up a
committee to write this grant, the library has a $1 million dollar
NEH endowment fund ($250,000 was given by the NEH, and $750,000
was raised by the university). The proceeds of this fund are
used to purchase humanities-related materials for the library.
