Greatest Need of the College

Support the Greatest Need of the College on 4.27.16.

A fundraising campaign for Canisius College

Greatest Need of the College

On Canisius Giving Day the collective generosity of hundreds of donors multiplies to provide valuable dollars for scholarships, academic and athletic excellence, and programs that strengthen the college's Jesuit educational mission.

Unrestricted gifts to the Canisius Fund and gifts designated to annual scholarships and financial aid enable the college to fund more institutional grants and scholarships through philanthropy - and devote more of its operating budget to academic excellence, Jesuit-mission related programs and other college priorities.

Together - in just one day - WE CAN make Canisius the best possible experience for our students!
