Department of Athletics Announces Creation of Football Excellence Fund

The State University of New York at Buffalo Blue & White Fund is excited to announce the launch of the Football Excellence Fund, which has been established to provide ongoing and recurring, comprehensive financial support for the UB football program.

“The Football Excellence Fund was created to provide our football coaches with additional resources for their program,” says Eric Gross, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development. “Resources to be put toward any critical areas of need that they believe will help them compete for and win championships. This fund also gives the UB community, alumni, friends and fans, an opportunity to have a very tangible impact on the continued growth of the football program.”

The Blue and White Fund and the football team look forward to engaging more individuals who share their vision of taking the fund—and the football program—to the next level. Contributors to the Football Excellence Fund will receive exclusive opportunities and access with the football program.

“In our quest to bring a consistent championship football program to The State University of New York at Buffalo, it will take a championship commitment on the part of many people. I hope many of you will be part of this commitment and join our team! TOGETHER we can do great things.” In the words of UB Head Football Coach Lance Leipold, “WE are the BULLS; Horns UP!”

“The Football Excellence Fund is a crucial component to our overall mission of bringing big-time college athletics to Western New York,” says UB Director of Athletics Danny White. “Supporting this fund will help build a foundation for excellence for years to come. We want to establish a championship culture here at UB and the Football Excellence Fund is a step in that direction.”

Support the NEW Football Excellence Fund and help build a foundation for success for years to come. For more information on the Football Excellence Fund, go to or call the Blue and White Fund Office at 716-645-6867.
