Annual gifts to Canisius are vital to the future of the college and honor the commitment we have made to current Griffins. Support from the Canisius community provides resources that support all facets of a Canisius education by providing essential funding for scholarships, academic and athletic excellence and distinguished learning experiences that animate our Jesuit educational mission.
This year, your annual support can go even further. Now through May 31, 2022, new and increased gifts to the Canisius Fund are being matched through the estate of the late Patrick C. Minehan '50, MS '52, up to $500,000.
