Campaign for the Community

The annual UB Campaign for Community (SEFA Campaign) impacts the Western New York area in many ways and demonstrates to the community how deeply SEAS and UB care about the community. Campaign funds are used to improve the lives of countless people in Western New York – it’s a testament to the charitable giving that infuses our university community.

Working together, we can make a difference!

You can choose a specific agency to receive your contribution or you can make a general contribution to be distributed to all of the participating agencies. Please consider giving – even a $1.00 a paycheck can help! The campaign money stays within the Buffalo and Erie county community.

Important Information

We ask that you complete the electronic form regardless of whether you are contributing to the campaign.

First time donors will receive a coupon for a free cup of coffee or tea, courtesy of Campus Dining. Anyone who contributes is also eligible for prizes in the weekly raffle!
