Double Your Gift to UD with the Whitney Challenge

The Whitney Challenge dares each and every graduate of the last decade to make a gift to UD. Starting November 1st, our A+ donor, Ken Whitney, will match all gifts up to $25 from undergraduate alumni from the Classes of 2002-2011, dollar-for-dollar. Your collective participation will have a great impact across the University.

I give back to UD so that future Blue Hens can have the same experience as I did. The four years that I spent at UD were some of the best of my life and I want others to be able to have that experience.

Give Now During The Whitney Challenge to Double Your Impact!

Longtime UD supporter and alumnus, Mr. Whitney ’80, will match up to $15,000 from UD's graduates of the last decade until December 31, 2011.

Give whatever you can to participate in the Whitney Challenge and up to $25 of your gift will be matched.  You can give to any college, department, athletic program, student club, or other area.  Mr. Whitney’s matching donation will ensure that whatever was most meaningful to you at UD receives twice the support.

Alumni giving makes our beautiful University an extraordinary place to grow and learn.  Your gift will support the future of UD and help increase our national rankings and the value of your degree.

The assignment is easy!

Step 1: Make your gift of any amount to any designation and the first $25 will be matched by Ken Whitney.
Step 2: Complete the exam to be featured on this site.

Mr. Whitney’s offer is good until the end of the year, so please make a gift today. Together, UD's young alumni can make a big difference across campus.

Not sure where to give? Your college, department, or program will really appreciate your support.  Involved in a sport or student organization?  Give to your favorite one to support current students with similar passions.  Or, give to University wide programs such as the Library, UD Sustainability Fund, or the UD Seed Project, which supports students working on real-world projects.
