President's Report on Philanthropy

I’m honored to present the 2013 President’s Report on Philanthropy. Each year, this report recognizes the University’s growth in annual support and the donors whose gifts enable our expanding impact.

In my daily interactions with students, faculty and community members, I’m privileged to hear remarkable stories that illustrate the power of giving. The story of Sean McDaniel, a student who will become the first in his family to graduate from college because of the scholarship support he’s received. The story of Prof. Alenka Hlousek-Radojcic, whose innovative curriculum comes alive for her students when it’s taught in the cutting-edge classrooms of our new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory. The story of a North Carolina family, no longer homeless, thanks to the efforts of UD students in the Blue Hen Leadership Program and Habitat for Humanity.

These stories, and many others, would remain untold without the enduring support of UD donors, like you. Thank you for giving a voice to the storytellers of today and tomorrow.
