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!

Class of 2024 Giving

As a graduating student, you have the opportunity to give back to the UD programs, organizations, team or causes that have positively impacted your time at UD. A gift of any amount makes a difference, and 100% of your gift will go directly to the fund you choose to support. Pay it forward for the next generation of Blue Hens by supporting the UD cause you love.

Class of 2024 donors will be recognized in the True Blue Hen Loyalty Society, will receive an exclusive graduation honor cord and charm and will be invited to the spring Twilight Toast reception!
