Your gift is what makes UB great! It inspires our students to take action and lead the way. It empowers our faculty to boldly tackle research and scholarly pursuits that deliver sought-after answers. And it enables our university to proudly fuel the creation and growth of vibrant communities in Buffalo and around the globe.
That’s why UB created the Loyal Blues: to recognize and thank you—our alumni and friends—for giving back to UB. As a Loyal Blue, you have access to free website downloads, special discounts, donor recognition at events and more.
Your gift molds a university that you’re proud to call your alma mater. To maintain your Loyal Blues status, be sure to make a gift, in any amount, each year (it’s that easy). We also encourage you to connect with our online community and participate in alumni events.

Your participation shows your pride in UB and the education you received, setting a powerful example for past, present and future Bulls. Loyal Blues are encouraged to attend events, volunteer in their communities and spread the word about UB wherever they go.
As a member of the Loyal Blues, you get perks based on your total annual gifts. Below is a breakdown of some of what you can expect as a member.
