Giving to USCB
The Office of Development is dedicated to developing external funding in support of university programs and institutional goals. The University of South Carolina Beaufort is actively pursuing external funding through gifts and grants to supplement funding provided by the state, tuition and fees.
As a public university, USCB receives state funding. However the direct support received from the state provides less than 8 percent of USCB's annual operating budget. Growing baccalaureate and community programs and to build future and enhance present facilities will require unprecedented external support. While the university is increasing its grant applications, it is clear that the generosity of this community provides the biggest impetus for our developing a distinctive institution. Gifts to the university are investments in our region and in the quality of life of area residents. We all benefit from the intellectual, educational, recreational and cultural opportunities the university provides.
Gifts to USCB will be used to meet the university's most important needs and opportunities, including faculty recruitment and retention, student scholarships and retention programs, library and computer resources, academic, athletic and community outreach program development, and facilities maintenance, renovation, and construction.
For more information on making a gift of any type or size, please contact us.
