For 150 years, Canisius College has educated tens of thousands of women and men through vigorous academics, life-changing opportunities and the Jesuit values that separate a Golden Griffin from any other individual. To celebrate its Sesquicentennial anniversary, and to pave the way for the next 150 years, Canisius is kicking off the Canisius Fund 150 campaign.
Canisius Fund 150 will bolster the Canisius Fund – with an ambitious $2.2 million goal. The Canisius Fund provides crucial current-use funding for our students’ greatest needs – most notably direct tuition assistance, academic support, and student services.
This special fundraising campaign celebrates the rich traditions of Canisius and all that it has provided our 48,000 alumni family. As a Canisius education, and the life-changing experiences that come with it, continue to be one distinguished from any other college, Canisius Fund 150 will celebrate our past and create the ultimate investment in securing our future.
Gifts to Canisius Fund 150 will ensure that a Canisius education remains vibrant and strong and will continue to expand the transformational alumni family that showcases the power of Canisius College.
