Put your #BowOnPoe and impact UB students!

 

This year, you can help UB earn an additional $22,000 on Giving Tuesday! UB President Kurt Schmoke, a UB Foundation board member and UB’s five deans together have pledged to match every dollar raised on November, 28, 2017 up to $22,000. Your generous gift can be worth twice as much on Giving Tuesday and will be doubly helpful to UB students in the new year!

Your contribution will provide direct, student-focused support for each of UB's four schools—the  Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciencesthe  College of Public Affairs, the  Merrick School of Business, the  School of Law —and  Langsdale Library .

The amount of your gift is up to you, but the schools and the library are competing with each other to see which one can garner the highest number of gifts (earning The Coveted Bowphy ) and the highest amount of donation dollars (earning the new Giving Cup ). So, sure—give more than once, and help out your favorite UB school/library.

We call our campaign #BowOnPoe. Check out our Twitter feed to the right and our videos below to learn more. Follow our  #BowOnPoe Twitter account, the UB Alumni Association’s Facebook page and Instagram and the University's InstagramTwitter and Facebook pages to see the progress of this one-day fundraising effort.
