Canisius Fund 150

September 24, 2019


The 2019-2020 academic year marks the 150th anniversary of Canisius College. Since 1870, we have been inspiring bright minds and thoughtful leadership through an exceptional education rooted in our Catholic, Jesuit mission. Today we are proud to celebrate our rich history and continue our tradition of excellence in teaching, research, and service.

At this special time, I ask that you reflect on your role in the Canisius legacy and celebrate all that Canisius means to you with a special gift to Canisius Fund 150Canisius Fund 150 is our Sesquicentennial fundraising campaign. It bolsters current-use support and addresses the greatest needs of the college and our students. At a time when so many colleges and universities are struggling, I am pleased to report that our enrollment is on the rise. Scholarship and financial aid have played a pivotal role in helping deserving students achieve their dream of a Canisius education, and your support enables us to continue this mission. 

Your gift to Canisius Fund 150 will also provide critical funding to enhance our campus-wide learning and living experience through new program development and facility improvements. 

As president, and one of 48,000 alumni of Canisius College, I am honored to stand with you and celebrate our shared Canisius story. I look forward to your participation in events and activities throughout the year—and to your support of this important fundraising campaign.
