If you would like information about how a gift from your estate plan can make an impact at UD, we will be glad to share options that may best suit your needs and intentions. We are also happy to work with your financial advisor and/or attorney to meet your charitable goals.


Please call 302-831-6798 or email giftplanning@udel.edu for information on:

  • Planned gift options to meet your philanthropic goals

  • Sample bequest language

  • How to make a gift from qualified retirement plans (IRAs)

  • A customized calculation for life income gifts – options with distributions made to the donor/designees for a lifetime or set period of time


If you have already made estate provisions for the University of Delaware, we thank you and hope that you will share those plans with us so that your gift is properly recorded and directed to the area you wish to impact. Donors who include UD in their estate plans are included in Carillon Circle, an exclusive group of our most loyal supporters.
