$10 million gift will retain and recruit world-class researchers to University at Buffalo
Date:6/13/2008

ce D. Jacobs, M.D., noted: "Since Larry died in 2001, we have been looking for a suitable tribute to him and his work. The creation of the Jacobs Institute will radically improve health care, research and teaching in Western New York and is a fitting tribute to his life, his work and his memory."

Jeremy Jacobs and the Jacobs family have long invested in higher education, providing significant financial support for a number of UB's most important academic initiatives. The Jacobs family has funded scholarships for exceptional undergraduates in the UB Honors College, provided financial aid to female student-athletes, and created flexible funds for innovation and special needs. In the mid-1980s, Jacobs gave more than $1 million to help fund two academic chairs and support a UB School of Management MBA program in China, the first academic partnership between an American university and that evolving nation. A School of Management building on UB's North Campus bears the Jacobs family name, in honor of his longstanding generosity.

In 2000, Jacobs donated the architectural landmark Butler Mansion to UB for use as a continuing education and training facility. Renamed the Jacobs Executive Development Center by the university, the building has been used for business education and has become an important regional presence for the university.
