Honorary and Memorial Gifts

Making a gift to UB in honor or memory of a teacher, student, relative or friend is a thoughtful and generous way to recognize his or her life and accomplishments.

When you make an honorary or memorial gift, the UB Foundation will notify the honoree or next of kin if you request and will administer the gift as you direct.  Gifts can be made in cash or as a transfer of assets.

To make a gift using UB's online form, check the box "my gift is in honor/ memory of someone" and let us know who you're honoring or memorializing with your gift.  You can also make a gift using our printable form [PDF].

For more information about giving a gift in honor or in memory of someone, please call 716-645-3013.

Buy a Brick

You can also honor or memorialize someone by participating in UB’s “Buy a Brick” program. Your brick will be engraved with your loved one’s name and installed in Buffalo Plaza on the North (Amherst) campus. These permanent bricks surround UB’s signature bronze buffalo statue in front of the Center for the Arts and are a lasting tribute to someone special.

Each brick costs $200.  For more information, contact Melissa Miklinski at 716-881-1406 or mm379@buffalo.edu.  You can also buy a brick using our printable form [PDF].
