schools and units: spread the word about the Giving day scavenger hunt

We have teamed up with Student Life to hide fifteen small Buffalo throughout North and South Campus. Students who find a Buffalo will be entered to win a prize pack, and get to designate a small donation to  a school/program that will receive a donation on their behalf for UB Giving Day. Follow along on their Instagram @ubstudentexp, and consider sharing a post to get your student followers to join in!

Example post:

  • "Today is #UBGivingDay! Get involved by heading on over to @ubstudentexp's Instagram to get in on the #UBGivingDay scavenger hunt and win a UB Prize Pack! #UBuffalo."

Are you planning to reach out to your personal network of fellow UB alumni, but not sure what to say? We’ve got you covered.

  • Why give to UB? – You’re a part of UB’s story, and alumni support is part of writing the next chapter for students. For UB students, every opportunity matters. Every experience matters. And, especially on Giving Day, every dollar matters.
  • Why today? – UB Giving Day is a 24-hour, community-driven fundraising challenge to support critical needs and deliver big opportunities that make the UB experience everything it is and everything it can be. When you make a gift on Giving Day, your impact goes even further through the power of matches and challenges.
