UB Giving Day, the University's largest 24-hour fundraising event, is an opportunity to support the LGBTQ Faculty and Staff Association's advocacy for student services.
UB Giving Day is April 19, 2023 and this year the LGBTQ Faculty and Staff Association has the opportunity to unlock our largest donation to date!
During the 24-hour period of April 19, UB Giving Day, if the LGBTQ FSA reaches 60 donors of any amount, University Advancement staff will unlock a $3,000 challenge. This generous opportunity is completely organized and funded by staff colleagues in University Advancement who are showing up to support LGBTQ employees and the mission of the association.
The mission of our FSA is to contribute to and support a welcoming and inclusive university community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer faculty and staff through education, networking and advocacy. This mission in action includes consistently offering faculty and staff members opportunities to engage, funding a Pride Scholarship for students, and doubling down on our advocacy for a LGBTQ+ resource center to serve students.
The FSA is funded only by annual dues from our members and fundraising initiatives like UB Giving Day. A $3,000 donation would be the largest the LGBTQ FSA has ever received!
