As faculty and staff members, we improve the UB student experience not only with our expertise in our fields, but also by sharing our time and talents. Now—through the UB Faculty Staff Campaign—we have another way to show that we believe in the mission of the university, in the work we do and in the students we educate.

Take the next bold step

This is our university. Our future. Our campaign. And our support directly enhances the quality of our programs. The best part? We have the opportunity to direct our gifts to the college, area or program that means the most to you. 

Whatever the reason and whatever the designation, faculty and staff gifts to our university speak volumes about UB as a place for philanthropic investment and show pride in our institution.

A message from the campaign co-chairs

Dear fellow faculty and staff,

We are thrilled to be the 2021-2022 co-chairs for the UB Faculty Staff Campaign and ask you to join in making your annual gift to UB today.

Last year almost 1,700 UB faculty and staff made gifts to the university, supporting over 600 different funds. This level of support shows that we are passionate about the role UB plays in our lives, both professionally and personally. It also shows how committed we are to making a difference at UB and for our students.

This year I hope you will join us and help meet our goal of 2,000 donors. Remember, it’s participation that counts, and every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. The success of this year’s campaign will not be possible without your financial support.

By participating in the UB Faculty Staff Campaign, you show your UB pride and send a bold message to our alumni and friends that you believe in UB’s future.

Thank you for joining in making this year’s campaign the best yet!

Marcene Robinson, BA '13.

I can’t imagine what path my life would have taken without the generosity of others. Scholarships opened countless doors for me as a student at UB. Now as an alum and staff member at the university, I give to help create similar opportunities for future students. -Marcene Robinson, BA '13
