Our faculty and staff have a long-standing reputation of outstanding support for UB’s annual Employees Campaign for the Community. The generosity of UB’s employees has made our campaign the most successful local campaign as well as one of the most successful among colleges and universities nationally.
I am proud to chair this year's campaigin, through which you have the opportunity to make an impact on the lives of individuals assisted by more than 600 programs and agencies in our community and beyond.
I encourage you to join me and your colleagues across UB’s three campuses in participating in this worthy cause. We live in uncertain financial times when the need for our generosity has never been greater. We are privileged to work for an institution that makes a significant impact on our community through our scholarship, teaching and service. Our financial support of the 2012 Employees Campaign for the Community is a natural extension of this impact.
I realize that many of us give financially in other areas of our lives. However, our collective participation in this effort sends an important signal to all citizens of our area concerning the recognition that our generosity is needed and appropriate.
Thank you for your consideration of this request. Together, our gifts will help build a stronger future for our neighbors, families, and friends.
With warm regards,
A. Scott Weber
Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs
2012 Campaign Chair
