SAVE THE DATE! May 1-2

What’s UB Giving Day? It’s a time for the entire UB community to unite for one cause: our university. From May 1 at noon to May 2 at noon, we’re challenging you to support UB students by making a life-changing gift.

 

The greater the participation, the greater the impact. Imagine how many students will benefit from the generosity of UB alumni and friends in 24 hours. We’ll succeed when alumni and friends around the world take part in Giving Day.

 

Show your UB pride. You can make an even bigger difference on Giving Day by signing up to be an ambassador and spreading the word about #UBGivingDay using your personal social media channels.

 

The UB of tomorrow is in our hands today. We are Boldly Buffalo. Are you?
