The McGannon Foundation offers a Student Involvement Program for post-secondary students enrolled  in risk management, insurance or related programs.

"On behalf of the Board of the McGannon Foundation, we are extremely grateful to have CNA as a new donor in support of our mission; to provide financial resources to students studying Insurance and Risk Management in post-secondary institutions,” said Joe Restoule, President of William H. McGannon Foundation Inc. “Our students, the McGannon class of 2023, were delighted to have met with representatives from CNA in Ottawa at the RIMS Canada conference. They really enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to engage with the CNA leadership there, who were so generous with their time.”


“We are thrilled to support the invaluable work that the McGannon Foundation is carrying out to advance risk management education in Canada through scholarships, research grants and student involvement programs,” says Erin Gattoni, Vice President of Human Resources. “Investing into education, research, and mentorship is vital to growing talent and awareness in the risk management and insurance space.”
