Time Honored Support

These indivduals are the backbone of the University, providing leadership and support where it is most needed.

Pillars and Signers Societies

In recognition of those whose generosity has allowed the University to flourish, the Pillars and Signers Societies have been established in order to recognize those who have made significant lifetime contributions to UD.

The Signers Society

The Signers Society recognizes donors whose lifetime giving is in excess of $250,000. The society is named in recognition of the three Signers of the Declaration of Independence in the original class of the Reverend Francis Alison's New London Academy, to which the University traces its roots. Just as those historic figures shaped the institution's earliest legacies, today's Signers continue to mold the University.

The Pillars Society

The Pillars Society recognizes donors whose lifetime giving is between $100,000 and $249,999. The society is thus named because the support of these individuals upholds the University. Just as the beautiful Georgian columns around campus uphold our buildings, the members of the Pillars Society provide leadership and support which serve as the foundation for excellence in all we do.

Please see the Delaware Diamonds Society for gifts of $1,000 and more.
