#CanisiusGivingDay is all about celebrating the students who call Canisius home and the people and programs that make Canisius an exceptional place…… and it’s happening NOW! The goal is to secure 2,398 donors in 24 hours – one donor for every undergraduate student. To build momentum throughout the day, the Canisius Fund has six Donor Milestone Challenges in place. Each challenge represents a group of students on campus. For example, the 1,066 Donor Challenge honors the number of graduate students on campus. Each challenge will unlock $10,000 for tuition assistance and scholarships. View the challenges here.
