Hayes Society

This honorary society recognizes all bequest intentions and deferred gifts to any UB program, of all amounts. Membership in the General Edmund Hayes Society is granted for life. Documentation of your generosity may include a summary of your gifting intentions.

Member recognition includes:

  • A limited edition print of the Hayes Hall Clock Tower made exclusively for the Hayes Society by Roycroft Renaissance Artist Tom Bojanowski
  • Your name listed in university recognition publications to the extent you would like
  • Invitations to special university events, including the Distinguished Speaker Series, presidential receptions and other programs
  • Special university publications and special updates

You can also join the Hayes Society by writing a will, for free. We’ve partnered with FreeWill to give you an online tool that will help you create a legacy and become a member. Learn more and get started here.

Have you included UB in your will and not yet notified us?

Thank you for remembering us in such a meaningful way. We invite you to contact us and join the Hayes Society.
