Employee Giving

Investing in Current and Future Purple Knights

Employees demonstrate a remarkable spirit of commitment to our students and academic community by participating in UB’s Employee Giving Campaign.

By supporting the area you are most passionate about, you set precedent for your peers and our students. Student activities, scholarship funds, academic programs, athletics, and facilities are just a few of the areas where you can support current and future Purple Knights.

Giving Back Through Payroll Deduction

Many employees find that payroll deduction is the easiest way to commit to a fixed amount over time without making a big impact on their budget. Gifts of any amount from UB employees are also an important way for grant-making organizations to understand the commitment and passion of our employees to our academic mission.

Every dollar re-invested in University of Bridgeport is a gift that pays extra dividends!
