Coming Together for a Cause

UD students come together to raise funds for causes they believe in.

At any given time, there are numerous student groups raising funds on campus supporting causes that range from international travel to student scholarships. Fundraising efforts are often carried out by word-of-mouth, through the UD crowdfunding platform or campus-wide events like UDance’s 10th annual dance marathon.

For students interested in supporting UD Crowdfunding, new initiatives are introduced monthly at udel.givecorps.com.

For April, several new projects launched fundraising initiatives including Synergy Fashion, a student-run fashion show featuring the original designs of several students being held on May 7; Engineers Without Borders, a student group constructing a borehole well and hand pump system to bring clean and accessible water to the village of Mphero in Malawi; and the Black Alumni Organization, raising money to increase the impact of its endowed scholarship, so that more students of color can receive financial support to offset college expenses.

New crowdfunding initiatives are often proposed by fellow students to band the entire University community together behind incredible causes. Seniors will be pleased to know that a contribution to a crowdfunding initiative is one of many unique ways they can contribute to their Senior Class Gift.
