Giving Day Video

Canisius Giving Day – our annual 24-hour online celebration of school spirit and giving – is Wednesday, April 6, just TWO WEEKS away!

This afternoon we will unveil the official campaign video to alumni, parents and friends via an Email announcement from Marya Propis ’91, chair of the Institutional Advancement Committee of the Board of Trustees. Before we share the spirit-filled video externally, we wanted faculty and staff to be amongst the first to preview it. We hope you enjoy it!

On April 6, watch the day unfold on the official Giving Day site and across the college’s social media channels!
