Endowed Scholarships

With a gift of an endowed scholarship, you will support the core mission of the college: to educate students in the Catholic Jesuit tradition. It’s a tradition that produces graduates equipped to become leaders. An endowed scholarship is not only an investment in Canisius College; it’s also an investment in people. It’s an investment that will make dreams come true.

An endowed scholarship is a permanently invested fund that provides a perpetual source of scholarship assistance to deserving students. The gift is invested to achieve returns that will provide both current scholarship assistance and longer term growth to protect against inflation.

A minimum gift of $25,000 is required to create an endowed scholarship at Canisius College. While unrestricted gifts provide the best opportunities to assist students, donors may set certain broad additional guidelines or criteria for how they would like to see the scholarship awarded. Your endowed scholarship fund may be named in your honor, or in honor or memory of a friend or loved one. Each year, you will receive a report about the students who will benefit from your generosity.
