The Value of Your Gift
In 2013 the University of Bridgeport placed in the top 25 percent of more than 1,500 colleges and universities on the Return on Investment College Education Value Rankings by Payscale.com. We’re pleased with the findings from this independent study, but not surprised. At UB, we not only help our graduates get hired, we make sure they prosper as leaders in their fields. We continue to enrich our curriculum with practical instruction, including hands-on learning, cutting-edge research, and in-the-field experiences before sending our students out into the world.
Every gift to UB is an investment in the mission of the University. Each year the gifts from alumni, parents, community members, faculty, and staff are put to work making improvements to campus, attracting and retaining top-rate faculty, enhancing classroom and learning spaces, and providing students with a variety of activities to participate in outside of the classroom. Donors to UB can choose to direct their gift to a program they feel passionate about or simply support the Annual Fund which provides the University with the ability to spend funds where they are needed most or create new opportunities for our students. Regardless of where the donation is allocated, UB supporters can be certain that their contribution is having an immediate and meaningful impact on campus.
In April of this year, UB is featuring a crowdfunding campaign for the first time! If you would like to be a part of this project or learn more about the student projects featured, click here.
If you have questions about the impact your gift will have, or to speak to someone directly about supporting UB, please contact Emily Brady, Director of Annual Giving at 203-576-4542 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
