UCG co founder Bruce Levenson is looking to bring the spirit of giving back to the community to the Washington DC area and Maryland as a whole with the introduction of a new center at the University of Maryland. The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland is dedicated to providing the best in training for undergraduates and graduates alike in the student body who hope to improve the lives of those in their community. Philanthropic programs have been close to the heart of Levenson and his family for many years, with their efforts bringing about change to the Washington DC area and the World in general.
The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland has been one of the biggest successes of the work of the Levenson family, with Bruce and wife Karen both heavily involved in the development of the center and its programs. The majority of the work of those attending the program is based around the Washington DC area, but a small number of programs also take the students at both undergraduate and graduate levels to far flung corners of the World, including Africa and India. Bruce Levenson has remained upbeat about the role the center plays in the community of Washington DC, which is already seeing a large number of graduates arriving in its not for profit sector because of the work of the center backed by Levenson and other donors.
Alongside the development of The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland, Levenson has also seen the US Holocaust Museum he helped fund go from strength to strength in the US capital. The Museum is dedicated to the survivors of the World War II Holocaust and features a series of outreach programs designed to provide young people in the Washington DC area and around the US with information and knowledge of how and why the events of World War II unfolded as they did.
