REMINDER: #CanisiusGivingDay 2020 is scheduled for April 22, 2020! #CanisiusGivingDay is a 24-hour online fundraising campaign that harnesses the pride and generosity of alumni across the globe to come together and support areas on campus that mean the most to them. It provides a wonderful opportunity for programs on campus to leverage the day and raise funds for their area.

This year, you must opt-in if you’d like to fundraise for your area. What does that mean? If you plan to actively fundraise for your respective area on Giving Day, please notify the Canisius Fund Office by Monday, February, 3. Campaign pages and designations will only be created for the programs, departments, teams, etc. that indicate they are participating. Please Email Suli Calianno, Canisius Fund coordinator, at or call Ext. 2712 by February 3 to officially opt-in.

In addition, the Canisius Fund Office has planned a series of informal training sessions to provide you with the tools and resources you need to fundraise for your program. You are welcome to attend as many sessions as you’d like!
