Subject: Join me in writing a story...

Dear _______: 

Today is #CanisiusGivingDay – where members of the Canisius community will once again gather together for an extraordinary day of giving back. 

#CanisiusGivingDay 2019 is all about sharing – and celebrating – the individual stories that make Canisius so special. And it’s about using those stories to inspire Griffs everywhere to give back so that the next generation of Canisius stories can be written. 

Last year, 2,110 Griffs came together and collectively contributed $448,350 for our students. This year, we’re aiming higher. I am asking you to help us reach this goal by making a gift today at Every gift made will help write a chapter in the Canisius storybooks of current and future Griffs!

Visit to follow the campaign’s progress, to watch this year’s Giving Day videos, which features inspiring stories from the Canisius Community, and more! 

Go Griffs!

Subject: THANK YOU! 

Dear _______: 

Thank you for your support during the fourth annual #CanisiusGivingDay. Together, we shared, and we listened, to the stories of those whose lives have been impacted, and will be impacted, by Canisius. And we came together in a big way to ensure countless more stories can be written. 

It was a remarkable day – and one that will go down in the history books for years to come! And while the day may have passed, the impact of your support is just beginning. 

Go Griffs!
