Support the Chapel Challenge

The Ida M. Block Chapel is a significant part of the University’s rich history and a welcoming symbol of diversity and inclusion. The chapel is in need of several upgrades. As part of our 125th Anniversary celebration we are raising funds to restore the Chapel. Help carry on the legacies of our founder and Ida M. Block by investing in a healing space for DelVal students.

Give to the 125th Anniversary Scholarship Fund

As we launch our 125th Anniversary Celebration at Delaware Valley University, we are asking you to consider providing access to a college education for a student with a gift to the 125th Anniversary Scholarship Fund. Your generosity will be part of a tradition as old as the University itself. Providing affordable education has been part of our mission from day one, and today, 99% of our students receive some level of financial aid. Please donate today. 

All gifts to the 125th Anniversary Scholarship Fund will be recognized on the 125th Anniversary website and in the fall 2021 issue of Horizons magazine.
