Letter from the Director of Annual Giving

Do you bleed blue and gold? Does your heart race to the sound of the Fight Song? Does your cell phone ring with the Carillon bells of Memorial Hall?

If so, you are among tens of thousands of University of Delaware alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends who care about this university with a passion.  A passion exemplified by their annual contribution to UD and its mission to provide excellence in education, teaching, research, and service.

As a 501(c)3 educational institution, UD is recognized as a tax-exempt organization that provides a tax-deduction in exchange for charitable support.  At the core of our mission is service to society.  Over the 267 years since our founding, we have launched tens of thousands of careers and an infinite number of connections through research, business, industry, discovery, social relationships, and education. Philanthropy is a fundamental link in the interconnections at UD, and your participation and interconnectivity are part of the tapestry of these tightly woven relationships whose threads begin around the pillars at Old College and Memorial Hall.

On behalf of the 21,177 students at the University of Delaware, we offer our grateful appreciation for your support. 

For UD,
Robin Wray
