Estate & Gift Planning

Gift planning, which includes estate gifts, is a smart, structured way to endow your annual gift for generations to come, meet your philanthropic goals, and provide support to Canisius students for years beyond your lifetime. Through a variety of planned giving options, you can support Canisius’ success – while establishing a legacy, becoming an integral part of the Canisius community and providing more opportunities to continue the distinctive Canisius educational experience.

Our Gift Planning Guide provides an overview of gift planning at Canisius.  In addition, please take a moment to review the various gift planning vehicles that are available, as well as benefits to both the donor and the college.
