How to Support Your Class

What Counts?

All gifts count! No matter the size or designation, your support will help your class reach its fundraising goals. Make a gift to your favorite college, department, or program at UD. Give back to an area that is meaningful to you. All gifts and pledges made between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013 are counted towards the class goals. The totals will be presented to President Harker during Alumni Weekend.

Gift Planning
Create a personal legacy by including UD in your estate or financial plans. The Office of Gift Planning can work with you to find the plan that achieves your philanthropic goals while taking into account your financial and tax situation.  Designate your gift to an area that is most important to you at the University, such as student or faculty support, departments or capital projects. Individuals can establish planned gifts in a variety of ways including bequest intentions, gifts that provide a life income - such as a charitable remainder trust (CRT) or charitable gift annuity (CGA) - gifts of real estate, life insurance, qualified retirement plan assets (IRA), and other deferred gifts.
