The Annual Fund: An Investment in UB

UB Annual Fund ReportYour annual gift to the University of Bridgeport provides an essential fiscal bridge between endowment and tuition revenue and the University’s operating budget.

Every gift to the annual fund makes a difference, no matter the size. For alumni, your participation in annual giving directly impacts our college rankings which increases the value of a UB degree for all. Gifts as small as $10 multiplied by our alumni body of nearly 62,000 could catapult our rankings in important publications like U.S. News & World Report.

Grantors also want to know that we have broad support from alumni, faculty, staff, and Trustees and pay attention to participation rates before awarding grants for research, scholarships, program development, and so much more.

If you have questions about the impact your annual gift will have, or to speak to someone directly about how best to support UB, please contact Robert Cottle, Vice President for University Relations at 203-576-4696 or
