BUFFALO, NY -- The public accounting firm of KPMG Peat Marwick has contributed $10,000 to the University at Buffalo School of Management for use in its Department of Accounting and Law.

The contribution was a result of the KPMG matching-gifts program and contributions from 21 KPMG employees, many of whom are graduates of the UB School of Management.

"The University at Buffalo has a significant source of talented individuals, and KPMG is very happy to support the School of Management," said KPMG Partner Gerard Mazurkiewicz," a 1969 graduate of the management school and a chair of its Accounting and Law Advisory Board.

Since 1988, KPMG has raised more than $73,000 for the School of Management, which offers both undergraduate and MBA degree programs in accounting.

"The School of Management is grateful to KPMG Peat Marwick and our alumni for their generous support," said Dean Frederick W. Winter. "Our long association with the firm has truly been a win-win situation."
