Every day we are thankful for donors who support the great things happening at UB. So much so, in fact, that we’re dedicating an entire week to thinking about giving and thanking donors!
Giving comes alive at UB during TAG Week through student activities and education, donor events and showing our gratitude. This week, UB students, faculty and staff will be reminded how philanthropy impacts them, and the numerous things—from programs, buildings, equipment and activities—that would not exist without the generosity of UB donors.
TAG Week stations will be set up throughout the week on the North and South campuses to demonstrate the impact of giving to UB, and to give away some UB gear. Students, faculty and alumni share their experiences with giving all week by writing thank you notes to donors, snapping photos, and posting on social media.
Students, faculty, staff and alumni can all participate in TAG Week, in person or on social media.
Share a photo or a fact you learned about giving with #UBThanks on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. You can even use our TAG Week geofilter on Snapchat and certain campus buildings throughout the week will have unique filters just for them!
