The financial commitment of the many alumni, fans and friends who make up the Blue abd Gold Fund empowers the athletic program to enhance the student-athlete experience, which will allow us to recruit quality individuals and compete for championships in every sport.

The Department of Athletics is responsible for the educational expenses (tuition, fees, room, board, books) of more than 300 student-athletes who receive scholarships to attend Canisius College and represent the school in intercollegiate competition. The Blue and Gold Fund, as the principal fundraising arm of Canisius athletics, provides a way for individuals to help these talented young people receive a quality education from Canisius College while ensuring the Griffs' tradition of excellence continues to grow.

On the court, on the field - wherever they compete - the Golden Griffins are not outhustled or outplayed. But they also rely on others to get there. We have delivered victories and championships beyond expectations. To continue this success demands more hard work and more opportunities for our student-athletes. Our focus is to increase and broaden our efforts to attract support for operating athletic programs, the retention of great coaches, for facilities and for scholarships.

Your gift to the Blue and Gold Fund will have a tremendous impact on our ability to enhance the student-athlete experience, but also will allow you to see the benefits of your support on a daily basis as students achieve both academically and athletically.
