Bridgeport NEXT

Gifts to University of Bridgeport propel the vision of our institution, and unlock new dimensions for the Purple Knights experience. Past gifts to UB include endowed scholarships, fully funded programmatic support, new facilities, and more.

Gifts can be contributed through a variety of means, including cash or check, money transfers, gifts of stock, and more.

The Bauers in front of Bauer Hall Innovation Center

Featured major gift

One of our latest major projects is the Bauer Hall Innovation Center. The Center was made possible through a generous gift from principal donors George and Carol Bauer and an additional gift from UB Trustee Mike Kolakowski. The Bauers are local philanthropists, dedicated to paying their success forward, whose projects in higher education and health care are transformative and life-changing.
