The sixth annual UB Giving Day is Tuesday, June 9 at noon to Wednesday, June 10 at noon (EDT). 

 

On UB Giving Day, please join us to support one common cause: our university. During these 24 hours, we strengthen the UB community in Buffalo and around the world, as alumni, faculty, staff and friends come together to invest in our students, our faculty and our world.  

 

Gifts may be made to any area or cause that is important to you. Matches and challenges have been made possible by generous donors, including a first-ever SUNY Challenge Match, and will increase the power of gifts and add a little friendly competition. 

 

Giving back is what brings us together and makes our university great. With your help, we can accomplish what UB Giving Day is meant to do: build community and support our university.
