Can I join with my friends or other alumni to place a group order?

Alumni or donors who want to make brick and paver donations as a group may contact Felicia H. Murphy-Phillips at 202.274.5319 or f.murphy-phillips@udc.edu for inquiries. For group orders of 10 bricks or more, the bricks under the same group will be clustered and installed together .  A free brick bearing the name of a group/class donating 30 bricks or more will be installed among its bricks as a token of our appreciation.

Can I share the purchase of a brick with someone else?

Due to the limited space for characters on each brick, please purchase one brick per person. There are convenient payment options by check, credit card, and payroll deduction (active UDC employees only) and payments may be made over a two-year period.
