Tunney Murchie (MBA ‘76, BS ‘75), Deanna Murchie (BS ‘74) and their family believe in collegiate athletics. They also understand that while UB provides an outstanding education, student athletes didn't have the space they needed to hold practice no matter the Buffalo weather.
That’s why they gave the single largest gift ever made to the athletic department to help turn the long-awaited 92,000-square-foot fieldhouse into a reality. Now, the fieldhouse—which is available to every varsity team and will be used for intramurals, student recreation and university events—will enable our Bulls to modernize, grow and compete on the national stage.
UB is committed to making sure our student-athletes receive every opportunity to perform at the highest levels: in the classroom, in the community and in competition. The Murchie family gift—and gifts of all sizes—will set a new standard for UB Athletics. Together, we will strengthen our university and the city we call home.
Your investment in UB will make a difference for a cause that matters to you: whether you make a gift to the UB Fund, support a scholarship for one UB student, sustain the work of a professor who will inspire thousands, or fund a cancer cure that saves the lives of millions. Every gift counts!
