In the spring of 2020, the university swung into action to assist people affected by COVID-19. Contributing seed funding of $9 million, Duke launched three new philanthropic initiatives to help the most vulnerable members of our university and local communities.
Duke Student Assistance Fund
The Duke Student Assistance Fund helps alleviate the unexpected burden of student expenses such as airline tickets, temporary housing, food, employment loss, technology for online learning and more.
Duke Health COVID-19 Response Fund
The Duke Health COVID-19 Response Fund addresses the needs of those impacted by the virus and accelerates coronavirus research.
The Duke-Durham Fund provides assistance to local nonprofits, small businesses and community-based organizations, helping address the needs of residents, and assist in the recovery and renewal of our city.
As a financial asset, endowments are a perpetual well of support for all areas of the university — from financial aid to professorships to capital projects, and more. Endowments at Duke ensure the long-term stability and success of the institution.
NEW Programmatic, faculty support & research Endowments
Our institutional commitment to admit students regardless of their ability to pay brings the best possible minds to Duke.
Financial aid, scholarships & fellowships
New endowed scholarships & fellowships
Strengthening and retaining our pool of top scholars and talented professors helps Duke make groundbreaking discoveries and meet the aspirations of every student.
By creating a legacy gift, donors have made a lasting impact through bequests, retirement accounts and other testamentary support to advance the university.
