Annual Fundraising Events

Each year, the University of Bridgeport hosts events to bring our community together in support of our students. These are the defining moments of our annual campaign, as all three events provide hundreds of thousands of dollars to enhance the Purple Knight experience.

We hope that you will join us at our next fundraising event!
