Canisius Fund

Canisius Fund

You inspire our students.

The 2016-17 Canisius Fund campaign is underway! This year we continue to celebrate the impact of donors, whose financial support ignites a spark for our students, inspiring them to “Go forth and set the world on fire” in the Jesuit tradition of St. Ignatius Loyola.

You'll be amazed by the impact your generosity can have on our students. Gifts of all sizes come together to make a big difference in shaping the college and supporting our students by providing essential funding for scholarships, academic and athletic excellence, and innovative learning experiences that are central to our Jesuit educational mission. In addition, the number of alumni who support Canisius every year influences the college’s ranking in key recruitment publications such as U.S. News & World Report.

When you make your gift to the 2016-17 Canisius Fund campaign this year you may allocate your contribution to one of the following initiatives or another designation of your choice:

  • Greatest Need of the College provides unrestricted support to areas that will have the greatest impact on our students - from scholarships and programming to library books and lab equipment. 
  • Scholarships and Tuition Assistance for Students allows us to make a Canisius education available to the best and brightest students, regardless of financial circumstances.
  • The John J. Hurley '78 Presidential Discretionary Fund gives the president access to resources to seize opportunities and support initiatives that promote our mission to be men and women for others. 
  • The Blue & Gold Fund provides the resources to build a sustainable, winning athletic program that attracts and develops exceptional student-athletes.
