Giving Back

The School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA) is an established community of socially concerned scholars and professionals committed to the challenges of today’s changing world. Known worldwide for integrating academic excellence and professional experience, we offer unique opportunities for our students.

Giving back to your School and the University of Delaware ensures the continued academic excellence that we are committed to providing our students. Affording continued growth in areas of planning, community development, nonprofit leadership, public policy, historic preservation, disaster science and management,  and environmental issues remains our continual challenge.

There are a number of ways to become involved in the on-going efforts of the School of Public Policy and Administration:

  • Designate your gift to SPPA scholarships, fellowships, student travel
  • Commit to scholarships for part-time students
  • Endowment fund
  • Discuss financial options for supporting SPPA with the UD Office of Development

There are options that allow you to select a gift arrangement that is convenient for you. Designate your gift at a time that you would like, or arrange to make an annual gift. Another option is to check with your company to see if they have a program to match your donation; that will increase your gift to the School of Public Policy and Administration.

Please visit to find out more information or if you would like to make a gift or pledge payment visit the Online Pledge page.

Your gift and support helps us continue to build and provide excellence in academic programs and applied research that has become our tradition.

Our strength and reputation for excellence is connected with you as part of our community! Thank you!
