Together, We make the Remarkable Happen

At Delaware, we seek to do more, to be more and to cultivate the differences that make us great.

Delaware First: The Campaign for the University of Delaware unites Blue Hens across the nation to accelerate UD’s mission of cultivating tomorrow’s leaders, creating solutions to grand challenges, embracing diversity and inclusivity, inspiring innovations and transforming lives. Delaware First is more than a name; it reminds us that when we put Delaware first in our hearts and minds, we can inspire others—and be inspired—to put first those things that will elevate the student experience at UD and extend our impact on the region and the world.

How planned gifts help

Planned gifts, whether through a bequest or other option, have played an important role throughout UD’s history and continue to impact its future. Generations of legacy gifts from estates have allowed the university to expand geographically and academically, attracting a more diverse student population. Our reputation and our research are gaining recognition beyond our regional borders.

A member of UD’s Office of Gift Planning can present you with options to fulfill intentions that will benefit the area(s) meaningful to you, whether it is student assistance, research, campus beautification, or another area. Gifts of all amounts are welcome; specific thresholds exist for naming and endowment opportunities so please discuss these possibilities with a member of our team before finalizing your plans.

Please call the Office of Gift Planning at 302.831.6798 or email us to schedule a confidential conversation with one of our knowledgeable team members.
