Student Giving

Senior Class Gift 2017Why give back to UD? Giving back to the University of Delaware is an opportunity for students to show their appreciation for the University experiences that have shaped who they are today. Many of the popular student-driven activities require philanthropic funding, and students may show their support for these causes by making a gift. Through philanthropy, students can help ensure that their favorite programs, teams, or clubs continue long after they graduate.

A Tradition of Philanthropy: University of Delaware students are known for their philanthropic efforts and civic engagement. Through student organization partnerships with philanthropic causes, canning efforts, and community service trips, Blue Hens are making strides to improve the world around them. By making a financial contribution to the University, you can choose to support causes that complement these philanthropic efforts and service trips. Your gift could fund breakthrough cancer drug production research, UD Alternative Breaks trips, student organizations, Athletics teams—the possibilities are endless!

Not sure where to give back? Students can contribute to almost any area on campus! These areas are called “designations” and indicate where a gift should be directed once received. Students can choose what is meaningful to them. Did you have an experience at UD that helped shape who you are today? Where did you meet your friends, discover new interests, or learn something new about yourself? Thinking through these questions can help you decide where you’d like to give back and show your gratitude.

How can I give? UD seniors have a unique opportunity to give back to UD through participation in the Senior Class Gift Campaign. The Senior Class Gift cultivates seniors giving back to ensure UD’s continued strength and prominence. Seniors can designate their gift to any of the 2,100+ UD funds available.

Senior Class Gift

Not a senior? No problem. Students are encouraged to begin learning about philanthropy and its impact on the University throughout their time at UD, not just during their senior year. Make a gift today to show your support for a program, college, or area on campus that inspires you.
