How To Make Your Gift

Your gift is important to the University of Bridgeport. There are a number of ways to make your gift as we recognize each donor has different needs.

Give Today. Visit to make your gift by credit card using our online system.

Give by Mail. Send your check or money order payable to the University of Bridgeport to the Office of Annual Giving, 219 Park Avenue, Bridgeport, CT 06604. If you wish to designate your gift to a specific program, please note that in the memo line of your check or include a note.

Give by Phone. From time to time our student calling program may contact you to update your information and talk directly with you about supporting UB. You can make your donation via credit card over the phone at that time, or call Robert Cottle, Vice President for University Relations at (203) 576-4696, any time!

Make a Gift of Stock. You may make an electronic stock transfer or gift stock in certificate form.

Contribute Through a Planned Gift. You may choose to support UB through a charitable gift annuity or trust, or you may choose to include UB in your estate plans or life insurance policy. When deciding which is the best option for you, visit our webpage dedicated to planned gifts.

Set up a Payroll Deduction. Gifts from faculty and staff are a vote of confidence in the University, and many choose to allocate a portion of their income to the University. Many foundations take into account the giving participation among faculty and staff when evaluating a university as a potential grant recipient. If you would like to set up a payroll deduction, log in to the portal to locate the form.

If you have additional questions or would like to speak with someone directly about how your gift will impact UB, or how we can best maximize the benefit of your gift for you, please contact Robert Cottle, Vice President for University Relations at 203-576-4696 or
