Canisius College receives $125,000 from local foundation

Canisius College has received a $125,000 gift to support the Nelson D. Civello ’67 Family Financial Markets Lab.

The gift – from Uncle Bob’s Self Storage Foundation – will be specifically used for the purchase and support of Bloomberg Terminals, which provide live market data and news information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and store information on public and private companies.

Students in Canisius College’s Golden Griffin Fund use the Bloomberg Terminals extensively.

Uncle Bob’s Self Storage is owned and operated by Williamsville-based Sovran Self Storage (NYSE: SSS), a public company that has seen significant growth in recent years, and was the subject of the award-winning research project by a team of Golden Griffin Fund students. That team won the global Chartered Financial Analyst Institute Research Challenge.

Uncle Bob’s President Kenneth Myszka earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Canisius in 1970 and currently serves on the college’s Board of Trustees.
