“I made my first gift to UD as a student. I wanted to ensure future Blue Hens would have access to the same opportunities that made my UD experience so special. I have been a loyal True Blue Hen donor and have given to the same program now for more than 10 years! Tuition covers less than half the cost needed to fund the student experience each year, and the support of loyal annual donors keeps the door open for students to access UD’s amazing resources.”
