Endowed Gifts

A healthy endowment is a benchmark for a strong and stable institution. By supporting the endowment through gifts of scholarships, fellowships, professorships and more, you help UD fulfill its mission of providing a world-class education and create opportunities for generations of Blue Hens to come.

The minimum to endow a fund at the University of Delaware is $50,000. If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.


Matching Gifts

Employer matching gift programs will often match employees’ charitable gifts dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation amount.

Find out if your support is eligible for matching to multiply the impact of your gift.



Make your gift count and count again and again! The University offers two opportunities for recurring gifts:

  • Monthly credit card deductions: Select monthly, quarterly or yearly options on our online giving form or complete and print this form and fax or mail it to UD.

  • Electronic Funds Transfer: contact our office at 302-831-4333 to learn how you can have a recurring gift deducted from your checking or savings account.

Honor Your Loved Ones

UD invites our community to honor or memorialize loved ones through philanthropy gifts to the University. No matter what their size, gifts to celebrate a family member, classmate, faculty member or friend can be designated toward any existing UD program or fund—perhaps one that would be meaningful to the honored or memorialized individual.
