SUNYAB Foundations Lawyer Up on Artvoice

Click here to read the one page, hand-delivered reply I received one week ago today from UB Foundation Activities, Inc., reaffirming their contention that they operate beyond the reach of the Freedom of Information Law.

This is how they respond to a member of the press. Just imagine how they would respond to an inquiry from Joe Public.

If the seven various UB Foundations are acting to “provide support services to the State University of New York at Buffalo by assisting in the furtherance of their tax-exempt purpose,” as they claim on their tax forms, wouldn’t those noble activities be something they would like to share with the community? With their employees? With their alumni?

The answer here is “no.” It appears they’ll now need to pay Hodgson Russ LLP to do their talking for them, because sharing information with the public is just not the way they like to do things.
