Bruce Levenson has made himself an indispensable part of the community in the state of Maryland after leading a number of major fundraising efforts in the state and the District of Columbia, as well as maintaining the headquarters of his own UCG company in the state to add to the economic success of the area. In 2010, Bruce Levenson helped establish the “Do Good Institute” at the University of Maryland that he hopes will have a further effect on the not for profit sector in and around the college campus, as well as assisting the next generation of philanthropic leaders in beginning their careers with a level of education that was formerly not available.
The “Do Good Institute” is the first of its kind in the U.S. and Bruce Levenson is hoping more schools will be buoyed by the success of the “Do Good Institute” and use it as a model for similar programs to begin across the U.S. Bruce Levenson points to the success that has been achieved with the “Philanthropy 101” program at the “Do Good Institute” that allows students to decide how to use $10,000 in funding for good causes they research or establish through the school.
Bruce Levenson is keen for the next generation of nor for profit leaders to follow his own level of success as a business expert after the Washington University graduate turned his own writing skills into the UCG company in 1977; the entrepreneur now provides communications and real time information technology that has been expanded upon to establish businesses like TechTarget and GasBuddy. According to Forbes Magazine, the success achieved by Bruce Levenson has seen him take on positions as a member of the NBA Board of Governors and with the Newsletter and Electronic Publishers Association in honor of his success as a philanthropist and business leader.
