Tribute Giving at Wilmington University
Establishing tribute funds supports Wilmington University's mission to provide students with access to education while celebrating and providing a lasting memory of one’s impact.
Establish a Tribute Fund
Tribute funds may be set up according to your instructions, for the benefit of all students, or may be restricted to a particular college, school, department or program.
Memorial funds provide a meaningful way for a family, foundation or company to honor the memory of a loved one while creating a lasting legacy for current and future students.
Honorary funds show appreciation toward someone who holds an important place in your life. This type of gift is often in dedication of a significant milestone or celebratory occasion.
