In Tribute and Memoriam
We realize that there are many ways to pay tribute to your family and friends. For this reason, we remain grateful to those who choose to honor or memorialize a loved one with a gift to the University of Delaware.
For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's talk Excellence.
"Striving for Excellence in all that we do" extends to the support we seek for UD's future. All alumni are being called upon to support their College.
Honoring or memorializing a special person with a gift to the University of Delaware can be tremendously satisfying. It is a formal tribute to a loved one, friend, or colleague that provides valuable support to the University.
No matter what their size, gifts to celebrate a family member, classmate, faculty member, or friend can be designated toward any existing UD program or fund—perhaps one that would be meaningful to the honored or memorialized individual—or left to the discretion of the University.
To make a tribute gift via credit card, please use our secure online form. Be sure to answer Yes to the question, Is this gift an honorary or memorial gift? Then, in the Special Instructions section, please give the name of the individual for whom you are making the gift. The University will then send notification to the next-of-kin or the person being honored, alerting them that a gift was made in memory of their loved one or in their honor.
