Help Make a Difference

With the help of valued partners who share our vision, DENIN is advancing its mission to find solutions to safeguard the environment we all share. Your gift to DENIN expands what is possible to achieve in our work with academia, government, and the private sector.

Since 2009, DENIN’s interdisciplinary network of researchers on the University of Delaware campus and beyond has been investigating pressing environmental challenges facing our communities, nation and world.

The collective knowledge we gain through our donors’ foresight and generosity resonates around the planet. We inform policies that safeguard people and protect prosperity as sea-level rise threatens the drinkability of our water and the health of our soil. We help coastal communities to plan resiliency. We prepare the next generation of leaders through paid fellowships for doctoral students and research internships for undergraduates.

Their positive impact on our planet starts at DENIN. Your positive impact starts with a donation to support our mission to make the world a more sustainable place.
