We strive to honor the intentions of all our donors. Consistent with safeguarding its own interests, the University of Delaware tries to make arranging a gift for the organization’s benefit as easy as possible. Accordingly, we hope the following will prove helpful:

If one of your clients arranges an estate gift for the benefit of UD, we would very much appreciate knowing about the gift, both so we can express our sincere gratitude and – as noted above – so we can make sure we will be able to fulfill the donor’s wishes.

We respect the fact that in some cases donors prefer to remain anonymous. If you are willing to serve as an intermediary, your client can share information about his or her plans without divulging his or her identity.
