Receiving a sincere thank you note and learning a bit about the recipient of a scholarship is important to our donors, who are interested in knowing how their personal generosity impacts UB students. It is also important to you and to future students – when donors know that their contributions are making a difference, they are encouraged to continue providing UB scholarship support.
