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 Athleics. Every former student-athlete who made a gift, of any amount, between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017, counted 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. This year, our goal is to exceed 13% alumni giving, which can be achieved with 1,080 alumni donors to athletics! We are already more than half way there with over 550 alumni donors.
