DSU Day of Giving

Day of Giving

May 15th 

In special recognition of our 130th Anniversary, we will hold our Inaugural Day of Giving celebration on Saturday, May 15th. DSU Day of Giving is a 24-hour giving effort to support the success of current and future Hornets. It’s a special time to show our Hornet pride, honor our mission, and raise crucial funds to support Delaware State University.

During the "DSU Day of Giving" Campaign you can give any amount to any area including funds for scholarships, hands-on experiences, and student and faculty research. Or you could support programs and organizations that impact our students’ physical, mental and spiritual health. You can choose any area at DSU that you are passionate about. The key is deciding where you want to make your impact, and then making your gift May 15th.

Our goal is to reach 1,300 donors to DSU in a single day. It's an opportunity for alumni, friends, and supporters to shine a unified light on the University and our students as we continue to learn, lead and serve for the benefit of us all. We invite you to join us on May 15th to demonstrate your dedication to DSU by doing these things:


Share how much Delaware State University means to you by making a gift and posting to social media on Giving Day using #DSUGives. Reach out to your network and get them fired up!


Giving matters – for strengthening programs, supporting scholarships, ensuring current Hornets have the DSU experience they deserve, and for DSU’s rankings.


Inspire others to give by issuing a challenge gift – contact the office of Development at dsufoundation [at] desu.edu to let us know of your interest.
