Impact of Support

Gifts of financial support to the Canisius Fund ignite a spark for our students that encourages them to do more and be more - not just for their own success but also in service to others and the greater glory of God. Watch the video below to hear from Chanel Davis '17, MS '18 on how her life was changed because of Canisius Fund donors.

Thank you, Canisius Fund Donors!

Annual gifts to the Canisius Fund  help make a Canisius education possible by providing essential funding for tuition assistance and scholarships, academic and athletic excellence and programs that strengthen our Jesuit educational mission.

Our 2016-17 campaign concluded on May 31 with more than $2.8 million in commitments from 6,135 Canisius alumni and friends - an increase of 408 donors over last year. We are so grateful for the opportunities made possible by our donors.
