St. Peter Canisius Society

The St. Peter Canisius Society is a community of generous and strategic-thinking donors who support the school’s mission well into the future through bequests, charitable trusts, and gifts of real estate, securities, or insurance.

The Society honors our school’s namesake. St. Peter Canisius was an influential teacher and preacher. He supervised the founding and operation of some of the first Jesuit educational institutions, often with little resources.

It is the firm belief of Canisius High School that every young man should be able to access a high-quality, Jesuit education regardless of his financial circumstance. We ask you to consider joining the St. Peter Canisius Society to help us expand opportunities for an excellent Jesuit education to the next generation of deserving students.
