The Alumni Association never got off the ground,
so it is a defunct idea for now, that is waiting for others
in the future to attempt to bring into fruition.

Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Alumni Association at UB

As of December 2000, we have initiated the LGBT Alumni Association at U.B.

The goals of the Association are being developed. But they include fund raising for the student group (LGBA) at U.B. In the past, donated funds were used for the annual conference held at U.B. called "OUT LOUD & PROUD" which served the LGBT community of Western New York.

We are thinking about the scope of the Alumni Association, but for now, its main goal is to keep contact with LGBT alumni and to help raise funds for the current student organization.

In the past five years, $2,500 has been contributed to the LGBA by the founder of the Gay Liberation Front of U.B. Now we will have the opportunity to expand on our fund raising potential.

In order for alumni to officially donate funds to the LGBA, they need to use the form which is below. 100% of the tax deductible donation should go to the LGBA student organization.Just print it out the form below and mail it back to Sub Board 1...

HISTORY OF THE LGBT ALUMNI ASSOCIATION at U.B.
by Rick Landman
For several years I gave a Founders Award to the head of the LGBA as a token of my appreciation for taking on the task of organizing the group. When I tried to officially make a donation to the LGBA through the SUB BOARD I of U.B. I was told that I had to give them the right to divert the funds at their discretion to any U.B. student group, or if I didn't accept that condition, I could have my check sent back. They actually sent the check back.

I then spent the next year trying to have the Foundation set up a sub group for the LGBT ALumni and it looked promising until December 2000 when I was told that they were not going to have any sub-groups in the Foundation, but they did agree to change the wording for SUB BOARD I to accept donations. Now we can send in donations and receive a tax deduction (like everyone else) and the students will get 100% of the donation.

Once this step was accomplished, I wanted to encourage others to donate, so once again, I have a little to do with starting another LGBT group in Buffalo. Camille graciously volunteered her assistance and together I hope that the idea will spread and that there will always be a well funded student LGBT group at U.B.
