Be bold by being a Loyal Blue

Loyal Blues day is Tuesday, March 3

So many incredible experiences—made possible by annual donors like you—help students confidently go out into the world and become entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, teachers and more. And it’s because of the support they receive from you.

To celebrate our Loyal Blues and convey to our students the tremendous benefits private philanthropy brings to our university, we’re dedicating Tuesday, March 3 to celebrating all our Loyal Blues. The entire university community will come together for Loyal Blues Day to learn why your support is critical and to thank you for boldly supporting UB.

What it means to be a Loyal Blue

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.

Stay true to the Blue

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.
