Giving Tuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday. Canisius has joined more than 4,000 organizations to participate in this national movement to kick off and celebrate the giving season. You can join the movement by making a gift to the Canisius Fund and support our students as they become men and women for others.

As you know, Canisius students make a difference. To help illustrate the impact of our students in the community and beyond, we have asked them to share their stories of service projects, immersion trips and co-curricular programs they have participated in while at Canisius.  We invite all faculty and staff to comment and post as well.

Learn about how our students are giving back by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
