    Will my gift make a difference?

    The short answer? Yes! Every gift is a vote of confidence for UD that influences major donors, corporations and private foundations. Whether you give to the UD general fund or a program important to you, a community of gifts adds up. Last year, nearly 70% of gifts were less than $100, but all giving reached nearly $900,000.
