Twilight Toast

Twilight Toast is an exclusive event for graduating seniors who make a gift of any amount to any UD cause during senior year. You and your fellow senior class donors will gather near Old College for a champagne toast in the weeks leading up to graduation to celebrate your accomplishments and philanthropy. Your UD journey began with the Twilight Induction Ceremony—don’t miss the opportunity to close out your UD chapter at Twilight Toast!

Senior Class Giving

As a student, you have the opportunity to impact campus and change the world when you give to your passion at UD. A gift of any amount makes a difference, and 100% of your gift will go directly to the organization, college, program or team you choose to support. Pay it forward for the next generation of Blue Hens by supporting the UD cause you love in honor of your class year ($20.23 for the Class of 2023).

With your donation of any amount, you will be recognized in the True Blue Hen Loyalty Society. Plus, in appreciation for your support, you will receive an exclusive graduation honor cord from the UD Alumni Association and be invited to the spring Twilight Toast reception!
