The UB Employees Campaign for the Community started in 1976 as
part of the State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA). For over 35
years, the campaign has given all university employees and retirees
a way to make a meaningful contribution to charitable organizations
Our campaign consistently ranks among the most successful of its
kind among the nation’s colleges and universities. UB donors
can choose to contribute to any of more than 2,800 health, human
service, educational, environmental and cultural organizations.
Historically, over 80 percent of the money raised through the
campaign has been designed for agencies in the Buffalo-Niagara
region. These donations help tens of thousands of our fellow
community members by providing services that align closely with
UB’s priorities for community engagement in the areas of
health and wellness, neighborhood revitalization, economic
development, and pre-K-16 education.
I am humbled and honored to be the Chair for UB’s 2017
Employees Campaign for the Community. For several decades, UB has
taken its place among the nation’s most generous
universities, based on employee giving. Your gifts and
contributions have positively influenced countless lives in the
Western New York Region, reflecting the spirit of volunteerism and
charitable giving that infuses our university community.
