Imagine the impact we will have if a large percentage of us participate!

The Blue Hens Athletic Alumni Giving Challenge

The Blue Hens Athletic Alumni Giving Challenge is a friendly competition between all 21 sport programs, encouraging former Blue Hens to donate to an athletics designation of their choice. By making a donation and encouraging former teammates to do the same, alumni will have a meaningful impact on Delaware Athletics. Every former student-athlete who makes a gift, of any amount, between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017, counts towards our FY17 Challenge.

Last year, our overall alumni giving percentage for student-athlete alumni was 11.3%. Fifteen programs increased their percentage from the previous year and four programs more than doubled their giving percentage.

Help us break last years mark with a gift today!

We are over 70% of the way there with over 780 alumni donors putting us at 9.6%

Here's how you can help:

  • Watch the video above to see why fellow alumni give back.
  • Make a gift to your team.
  • Share your why on social media and invite your friends to do the same. (Tag your sport or @UDBluehens & #BlueHens)
Every gift counts. Together, we are inspiring greatness in today's Blue Hens!


FY17 Results to Date (as of June 23, 2017):

To designate your gift to your program, please make a note in the "additional instructions" box when making your gift. If you do not select a specific sport, your gift will be directed toward the UD Athletic Fund.
