2016 Sponsorship Opportunities


Delaware’s only hbcu is Celebrating 125 years of service to the state, the nation and the world.

The official start date of the anniversary year is May 15, 2016. Please join our grand celebrations in marking this significant milestone. Net proceeds from events will benefit scholarships for DSU students. For more information on the events and activities, visit the 125th anniversary website: desu.edu/125.


ELEGANT EVENTS FOR AN IMPORTANT PURPOSE To commemorate the significant milestone of 125 years of service to the state, the nation and the world, DSU invites sponsorship of two events, the 125th Anniversary Celebration and the President’s Scholarship Ball. The 125th Anniversary Celebration will commemorate DSU’s birthday with much fanfare during Homecoming weekend. In its sixth year, the President’s Scholarship Ball is DSU’s signature fundraising event. Here’s a great opportunity to showcase your organization’s support of Delaware’s only HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). The purpose of both 125th anniversary events is to support DSU students who need financial assistance in order to graduate and enter the workforce in Delaware and around the world. WHO Hosted by a diverse group of corporate partners, the attendees also include alumni, dignitaries, civic leaders, public officials and friends who support DSU. You are invited to contribute to the 125th anniversary fundraising events with the purchase of a sponsor package ranging from $500-$25,000. Sponsor package benefits include recognition before and during the event in related advertising and promotional materials as well as elegant dining for your guests.
