Philanthropic support aids in reinvigorating campus and all of the experiences, programs and opportunities it offers. Financially supporting the Parents Fund, which contributes to the efforts of Delaware First: The Campaign for the University of Delaware, is a meaningful way for parents and families to impact and influence the UD student experience, not just for their own student, but for all Blue Hens.
The Parents Fund provides the Division of Student Life with valuable resources to support its mission to advance equity and inclusion, deepen student learning and drive holistic development through education, experience and communities. The Division works to lead a dynamic student experience and vibrant campus culture so all Blue Hens thrive throughout their lives.
Enriching the Student Experience
Your contribution to the Parents Fund will help provide:
- Mental health and wellbeing resources
- Support for inclusion and equity initiatives
- Enhanced opportunities for student engagement and leadership development
- Expanded career development resources for post-graduate success
Your support will not only enhance students’ time on campus, but also will help provide thousands of unique opportunities for UD students to discover their identities and passions; manage their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing; and learn to engage with the many diverse communities to which they belong as they prepare for a lifetime of growth and excellence.
“I can't name a better space on campus to work, study and unwind. I’d like to thank the donors who supported the Wellbeing Center for helping to create a safe space for students whether they are seeking services, needing meeting space or attending a program to learn about wellness. There is always something going on in the center, and everyone is welcome!
