Why Invest in the Future of USCB

In the wake of lockdowns and skilled-employee shortages, there has never been a more critical time to invest in long-term economic drivers – like USCB.

Students in Marsh

If you live, work or play in the Lowcountry, USCB impacts your quality of life – maybe more than you know. Service to this community is our mission and our passion. Your investments in student support, academic programs, faculty chairs and research, athletics and infrastructure propel all of USCB forward.

That’s impact. And we thank you.

“I wouldn’t have gone to college right away without my scholarships. I could’ve used a student loan. But you need a co-signer with good credit, and I didn’t have one. Now I’m more confident. Instead of thinking I can’t do something, I always think I can do it now. All that hard work I did in high school was worth it. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders because I have the amazing opportunity to get my bachelor’s degree.”
