Memorial & Honorary Gifts

Honoring a special person with a gift to the University of Delaware can be tremendously satisfying. It is a lasting tribute to a loved one, friend, or colleague, and it provides valuable support 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 to which the decedent directed gifts during his or her lifetime—or left to the discretion of the University.

If you would like to make a gift in honor or in memory of an individual, please click here. The University will send notification to either the next-of-kin or the celebrated, alerting them that a gift was made in their honor or in memory of their loved one.

Please contact Donor Relations and Special Events at (302) 831-2104 or via email at with any questions.
