At Canisius, students experience state-of-the-art living and learning environments, outstanding academic programs, unique research and internship opportunities, faculty from the best universities nationwide and enhanced extracurricular programs.

However, tuition and fees do not cover the actual cost of a Canisius education. That’s why each year, 87 percent of students receive scholarship support beyond state and federal aid.

Endowments for scholarships, as well as academic programs and professorships, provide dependable funds, year after year, for their designated programs.

An endowed fund can be established by an outright gift of cash, securities, bequest, planned gift such as a charitable gift annuity, or a combination of giving methods. Canisius will work with you to create an endowment fund that will not only benefit the college and students according to your wishes, but also best suit your financial situation.

For additional information on endowed support at Canisius College, contact Ginny Dadaian, Director of Stewardship, at (716) 888-8217 or
