STUDENT PHILANTHROPY


Student Philanthropy

As a student, you can IMPACT CAMPUS, CHANGE THE WORLD and support YOUR PASSION when you give back to UD.

Your gift of ANY amount can make a difference, and 100% of your gift will go directly to the organization, college, program or team you choose to support. You can make a unique impact when you join your classmates and give in honor of your class year ($20.19 for the Class of 2019, $20.20 for the Class of 2020, etc.).

All student donors are automatically welcomed into the True Blue Hen Loyalty Society, which recognizes donors who make a gift to UD—of any amount—every year. Alumni, friends, faculty, staff and other donors are required to give at least three consecutive years to be included in the True Blue Hen Loyalty Society, but as a student donor, you receive the same recognition benefits as UD’s most loyal annual donors after making your FIRST gift! You will remain in the True Blue Hen Loyalty Society as long as you continue to make an annual gift to UD.

SENIOR CLASS GIFT

Senior Class Gift 2019

Seniors, you can make a commemorative gift of $20.19 to honor your graduation year and celebrate your time at UD. Give to your passion—choose any college, program, organization, team or other UD cause that has made an impact on you as a student. Your donation will directly support the fund you choose, from an RSO or club sport to your academic program or other philanthropic cause at the University. As a Senior Class Gift donor, you will receive a Class of 2019 tassel to wear on your graduation cap, and you will be invited to the Twilight Toast, which brings you and your classmates together to salute the past four years at UD.

FAQ 

Q. Why does UD even need my support?
A. Tuition only covers 43% of what it takes to get a student through the academic year—donor support is essential for the University to keep operating through the year and to be able to provide the academic and extracurricular opportunities that are part of every student’s UD experience.

Q. Can I give to anything I want at UD?
A. You can make a gift to any area on campus—there are over 2,000 UD funds available to support. When you make a gift, select the “Other” option and start typing in the name of the program, project or area where you plan to designate your gift.

Q. I’m a college student and have student loans…how can I afford to make a difference?
A. Your gift of ANY amount can make a difference. Even $5 can affect a program you love at UD. Just think—if 20 students gave $5 each or if 5 students gave in honor of their class year at $20.19, that would be $100, which could help a student go on a UD Alternative Breaks (UDaB) trip or assist a student teacher planning to take a certification exam. You can be part of something greater!

Q. How do I make a gift?
A. Make your gift online today. Whether you’re clicking through an e-mail or stopping by a student philanthropy event on campus, you will always be directed to this student online giving form.
