The gift, the largest in the Catholic school's capital campaign, will pay for a Center for Global Learning.

Canisius High School in Buffalo, N.Y., has received a $2.5 million donation from an alumnus for an expansion of the Catholic school campus.

The expansion, the Madden Center for Global Learning, will be named for alumnus Michael Madden.

The school's vision for the expansion is a modern design that will enable faculty and students to participate in educational and cultural exchanges and connect Canisius students to a world of knowledge beyond the classroom.

Madden’s gift, the largest in Canisius’ “Rich Tradition. Bold Vision.” capital campaign, has enabled the fundraising effort to approach the $20 million mark.

Other facility projects to be financed through the campaign pillars are new baseball fields at the school’s Robert J. Stransky Athletic Complex in West Seneca and the addition of a Center for the Arts at the school’s Delaware Avenue campus,.

Construction on the Madden Center is scheduled to begin in early 2022. Completion is expected in September 2022.
