Annual Giving

How would you like to score a touchdown?

    Or play trombone in the marching band? Or realize a long-cherished dream to attend medical school? Or start a successful career in Hollywood?

    These are among the many accomplishments shared by UB’s 154,000 alumni worldwide. Each individual achievement, each dream, success story and warm memory is part of UB’s living tradition. And they’re all made possible, in part, by annual giving.

    Every generation of students and alumni brings its dreams to UB. Many of those dreams are realized here, and many more are transformed into exciting new possibilities. This is the true mission of the university—to give students, faculty, alumni and friends of UB a place to make their dreams come true.

    Through annual giving, you can be an indispensable part of making those dreams real. Today more than 25,000 alumni and friends of the university give annually to UB. And while that number is gratifying, there are many more opportunities for people like you to live your dreams once again through an unrestricted annual gift.

    How can your annual gift fulfill many dreams—yours and those you help? When your gift helps provide merit scholarships to deserving undergraduates, you could be making possible a brilliant medical career. That in turn can help raise admission standards, allowing UB to compete for the best and brightest students. It can enhance UB’s reputation, adding value to your own UB degree. And it can help the university take its place among the country’s leading institutions of higher learning.

    If your gift funds an athletic scholarship, you could be helping UB keep a promising young person in Buffalo, or attract scholar-athletes from around the country. You could help launch an Olympic career, or simply inspire a lifetime of wonderful memories of friendships and fun.

    With an annual gift, the possibilities truly are endless. No one can see the future, but we all know it will bring exciting opportunities and new challenges. Unrestricted annual gifts provide UB with much-needed resources to seize each new opportunity and meet unforeseen challenges.

    Best of all, annual giving provides an opportunity to give at any level. Even a modest annual gift will pay huge dividends over time, affecting everything from the quality of instruction to the quality of campus life. Now is your chance to listen to the voices in each story, to share the memories and dreams. Then share the possibilities with your gift.
