FOOTBALL EXCELLENCE FUND
The Football Excellence Fund has been established to provide ongoing and recurring comprehensive support for the UB Football program. Although we cannot join our coaches on the road while recruiting or draw up the game-winning play during a final time-out, we can still have a dramatic impact on the future success of the team. Additional funding will allow UB to build the financial foundation necessary to compete at the highest level. Your commitment to the FEF will provide support to many critical areas of need and significantly enhance our competitive success.

“In our quest to bring a consistent championship football program to the University at Buffalo, it will take a championship commitment on the part of many people. I hope you will be part of this commitment and join our team! TOGETHER we can do great things. WE ARE THE BULLS – Horns UP!”
Head Coach Lance Leipold
“Getting a scholarship was huge. It allowed me to grow up and learn, not only about myself but about other people as well. It’s huge that I received a scholarship and am now able to leave UB with a degree. I now have the opportunities that I had worked for right in front of me and I just want to be successful at whatever it is that I do. I appreciate the donors. Through my years here in college I had the opportunity to meet a few and sit down with them. You know, it’s the conversations that you have with them and knowing that some of them are UB alums or just have ties to the program. It’s people like that, who make you want to say that one day I want to give back to this program as well. seeing them give back and the fact that they still have faith and believe that great things can happen and can be achieved here is huge.”
