Erin Hartnett

Canisius Fund is a premier private university located in downtown Buffalo, NY, and one of 28 Jesuit, Catholic colleges in the nation.

Erin Hartnett, Director of Canisius Fund, shared her online fundraising success story using GiveGab. Having done their own online fundraising in the past, Erin shared how much things have improved since they started using GiveGab for running several online fundraising campaigns and hosting Canisius Giving Day!

Choosing GiveGab

Erin's interest in fundraising more effectively and efficiently, paired with wanting to launch a Giving Day, inspired her to begin using GiveGab for online fundraising. Once she began using the platform, Erin expressed her appreciation for how "GiveGab made it easy to empower others to fundraise without having to do the administrative work on their behalf!"

Erin told us that her favorite GiveGab feature is "the GiveGab team", also highlighting that her most positive experience using our platform was the peer-to-peer fundraising functionality that allowed the Canisius students to help raise funds for service trips.

Awesome Results

Thanks to GiveGab, Erin shared with us that Canisius was able to raise more money for ministry trips than ever before. She would also recommend using GiveGab to other organizations because of the "great customer service and overall support to help launch a successful Giving Day."

Fundraising Results for

Canisius Giving Day





Once the Giving Day was over, John J. Hurley, President at Canisius College, told us, "Our results were astounding. We have never accomplished anything like this in our giving program in the 30 years I’ve been working on it."

Along with hosting their successful Giving Day, Canisius has run several online crowdfunding campaigns on GiveGab, including their International Service-Immersion Campaign, which blew past their goal of $10k with more than a month to go!

Their Be the Spark - Canisius Fund Annual Campaign brought in over $2 Million for 2015-2016 - over 100% of their fundraising goal!

When asked how GiveGab helped Canisius reach their fundraising goals, Erin told us:

"GiveGab has enabled us to fundraise for specific projects, whereas without this platform we would not have the manpower to do so."
