Save the date for #CanisiusGivingDay, which is earlier than previous years – March 3, 2021!

#CanisiusGivingDay is a 24-hour online fundraising campaign that harnesses the pride and generosity of the Canisius community far and wide to 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.

Covid-19 has shown the resilience of the Canisius community and how we are always present to support our students. That is why this year’s theme reflects “One Canisius,” a unified community of faculty, staff, alumni and friends that invest in the academic programs, athletic teams and institutes that provide each student with transformative opportunities!

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, January, 18. 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 January 18 to officially opt-in.

We look forward to an incredible day that shows of investing in the many incredible facets of the Canisius experience, and in doing so showing that we are One Canisius!
