Donor Profile: James C. Murray Jr. '03

December 7, 2017


“Canisius very much chose me rather than the other way around.  I had my sights set on California for college when Canisius offered me an attractive academic scholarship.  Very quickly, it became obvious that Canisius was the best place for me. 

“Several years after graduation, I again became involved again with Canisius.  It took someone whom I respected, encouraging me to get involved.  He pointed out the critical role institutions play in our society and that the strength of those institutions is directly dependent on individual commitments.  Hopefully, my annual gift can play a small role in strengthening the college while enriching the student experience.  I also hope to inspire alumni to commit to strengthening institutions, like Canisius, which underpin our society.”
