Fenimore Asset Management Gifts $100,000 to Establish Scholarship Fund for Schoharie County Students

Fenimore Asset Management, an investment manager with offices in Cobleskill and Albany, has presented a donation of $100,000 to the SUNY Cobleskill Foundation, establishing an endowed fund to benefit students from Schoharie County who have demonstrated academic merit and face financial challenges in completing their degree.

Up to five scholarship recipients will be selected annually to assist recipients with educational expenses incurred in their full-time pursuit of a Bachelor’s or Associate’s degree at SUNY Cobleskill. Students at all levels of study will be considered.

With strong roots in Schoharie County, Fenimore Asset Management embraces the value of financial and volunteer support for our community, with a focus on the arts, education, and human services, a corporate citizenship model that has greatly benefitted many nonprofit organizations throughout Upstate New York, and beyond.

“With this endowed gift, Fenimore again demonstrates its long-held commitment to a growing, thriving society and education’s critical place within,” said Dr. Marion Terenzio, president of SUNY Cobleskill. “The immense gratitude we feel today will only grow and blossom in the years ahead as more of our local learners find encouragement through kindness, fulfilling their academic journey through our one hundred-year tradition of nourishing the world and finding solutions that sustain our thriving society.”

“Fenimore’s values are demonstrated through a shared future-mindedness with our community partners, serving to enrich Schoharie County and its future learners and leaders,” said Debra Pollard, president of Fenimore Asset Management. “As a partner in shared values, we are delighted to make this gift to SUNY Cobleskill and the aspirational learners of today and tomorrow.”

The SUNY Cobleskill Foundation helps position the College as a leader in public education by empowering students to succeed inside and outside the classroom, end ensuring faculty has the ability to maintain academic excellence in teaching.
