Help Make a Difference

University faculty, staff and leadership has set an ambitious goal to double the number of donors and dollars raised from faculty and staff in 2012–13 to $2 million raised and 50% donor participation.

Rising to the Challenge

2012-2013 Faculty & Staff Campaign

As Blue Hen faculty and staff members, you know how important it is to provide cutting-edge innovation to Delaware, the nation and the world. Your hard work and dedication is vital to the future growth of the University. At the same time, your financial contributions shape UD into one of the most preeminent public institutions in the country. Charitable gifts have helped fund numerous projects including student scholarships, enhanced research facilities, graduate fellowships and a “greener” UD. They help ensure that the University of Delaware attracts the top professors, faculty and staff in the nation.

Your support demonstrates that you believe in our mission and are confident in our success. Furthermore, your contribution will send a powerful message to the UD community, who are considering investing in our achievements.

Whatever the reason and whatever the designation, faculty and staff gifts to the University speak volumes about our institution as a place for philanthropic investment and  a way to show your pride in the University.

The Faculty and Staff Campaign provides an opportunity for University employees to help enhance the quality of the University's programs through their financial contributions.

Employees can direct their gifts to the college, campus, or program of their choice through a payment option that works best for them, including payroll deduction.

Examples of other programs that benefit from faculty and staff giving include the seven colleges, UD Library, the Parents Fund, faculty support, UDAF, Sustainability, and a host of other options—employees can direct contributions to the area of their choice at the University.

Last year's efforts raised more than $1 million, with a 22.5% participation rate across the University.

Ways to give

There are several convenient payment options—simply choose the one that is best for you. In addition to the typical ways to give through check or credit card, employees can set up a regular payroll deduction.

Payroll deduction—This is an easy, convenient way to spread your gift out over multiple, ongoing payments. Visit the payroll deduction page and download a contribution form.

Give online via credit card—You can make a credit card gift online anytime.

Check—Return the contribution form when you receive your faculty and staff campaign appeal or any other UD Annual Fund appeal.
