Annual Hilltop Society Dinner

UMBC has accumulated a rich history in its first 50 years, rising from a patch of Baltimore County farmland through the social and political turbulence of the mid-20th century to become a university nationally recognized for the quality of its education and its commitment to diversity. This year’s annual Hilltop Society dinner, in addition to being a “thank you” to our donors, carried on that story, as guests dined amid the “UMBC at 50: Sharing the Past, Building the Future” exhibit at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery. >> Read the full story here.

*Corporate matching gifts received by June 30 will apply toward Hilltop Society Membership.

**These new giving levels are being rolled out with FY17 (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017) and will be reflected in upcoming Hilltop Society donor honor rolls.
