Coffee and Donuts with Canisius Fund

donorwallCanisius Fund staff, volunteers and students will be visiting campus offices in the coming weeks with coffee and donuts to personally thank faculty and staff donors for their commitments. It’s not too late to make a gift to support the 2016-17 campaign.

In addition, the Faculty and Staff Donor Recognition Wall, located between Tim Horton’s and the library entrance, is back, proudly displaying the names of the college’s generous faculty and staff supporters for 2016-17!

All of these initiatives are part of this year’s Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign, which provides essential funding for scholarships and tuition assistance, academic and athletic excellence, and programs that strengthen our Jesuit educational mission.

If you have not yet made your gift, you can do so by clicking here, where you can direct your gift to the college’s greatest needs or your favorite campus initiative or academic department.

Thank you for all that you do on behalf of Canisius College! Together, we inspire our students to “go forth and set the world on fire.”
