Leadership Society

The undergraduate, graduate and professional programs at Canisius are distinguished by learning experiences that transform the mind and spirit, and engage students in the classroom and beyond. Our Jesuit tradition fosters a commitment to excellence, service and leadership in a global society. Leadership Society gifts help provide this inspiring education.

Magis Giving Circle

Established in 2015, the Magis Giving Circle represents the three highest giving levels of Leadership Society  (see Qualifications for Membership above). Last year, our Magis Giving Circle was comprised of a total of 195 members who provided 83 percent of the $5.3 million contributed collectively by Leadership Society members. The Magis Giving Circle plays an exceptionally important role at the college and in the lives of our students, making opportunities available that would not be possible otherwise.

Magis Circle benefactors gather annually for an exclusive dinner with President John J. Hurley at the Country Club of Buffalo, in addition to receiving all of the benefits offered through the Leadership Society.
