Parent & Family Giving
The Office of Parent & Family Giving provides parents and families the opportunity to play an important role in enhancing the student experience through philanthropy to all areas across the University.
Proud Blue Hen parents and families play an integral role at UD. By supporting the University, you help ensure a dynamic student experience so all Blue Hens thrive throughout their lives.
Meet Eugene Petracca, P22, Senior National Chair of the Parent & Family Leadership Council
Having long been part of his children’s education and academic journey, Eugene Petracca wanted to find a way to connect to UD once his daughter, Alicia, received her acceptance letter. He was able to do that by joining the Parent & Family Leadership Council (PFLC), a community of parents and families dedicated to enhancing the Blue Hen student experience.
Join the Blue Hen Family Hub
Staying informed is one of the ways proud Blue Hen parents and families can engage with UD, stay connected and support students. UD families are invited to connect with their students at the University of Delaware through the Blue Hen Family Hub.
In the Blue Hen Family Hub, parents and families can:
- Access important campus news and deadlines
- Sign up to receive personalized newsletters and announcements
- Share updates with friends and family in the Blue Hen community
- Connect with information and resources to help your student thrive at UD.
