Bruce Levenson is well known for the support he has provided over the years for the state of Maryland and the U.S. capital of Washington D.C., including the fact Levenson has kept his UCG business headquartered in the state of Maryland throughout its life. Making a difference in the lives of different communities has always been a priority for Bruce Levenson who looked to develop new philanthropists and not for profit leaders as early as 2010 with the launch of the “Do Good Institute” at the University of Maryland.
In 2017 the “Do Good Institute” will for the first time offer a major in philanthropy and not for profit leadership that shows the progress that has been made from the first year of operation for the institute that saw a single course offered of “Philanthropy 101”. The lofty goals of Bruce Levenson for the “Do Good Institute” see the founder of the $75 million school attempting to create what is described as a “Do Good Campus” where all students and staff members are aware of the opportunities available to them to give back; Levenson also wants to ensure the work achieved at the University of Maryland can be transferred to other college’s around the world who can copy the blueprint for success he has helped develop.
The Forbes reported $850 million sale of the Atlanta Hawks by the consortium headed by Brice Levenson to the billionaire technology expert Tony Ressler has not seen the founder of UCG take a backseat in any aspect of his life; instead, Levenson has been looking for new ways of making an impact on the life of millions of people around the world with an increased level of philanthropy seen since 2015. Understanding the global political climate has been something Bruce Levenson has looked to do as the member of the Jewish faith was one of a group of leading followers of Judaism to call on the Israeli government to seek a peaceful end to the tensions with neighboring Palestine.
