Youth Empowerment

Contributions support community-based tutoring and mentoring programs that empower Durham's youth and set them on a path toward high school graduation, civic leadership and long-term success.


Donations support efforts to increase homeownership, bolster economic vitality and improve quality of life in neighborhoods close to downtown Durham.


Donations help provide access to high-quality and holistic healthcare for all our neighbors, regardless of ability to pay.

Community Care Fund

Donations support competitive grants to local non-profits for projects that serve real community needs. Donors choose the focus of each annual grant cycle.

United Way of the Greater Triangle

Donations to United Way of the Greater Triangle support your choice of any non-profit organization, or general funds that meet the most pressing needs in the Triangle through a focus on basic needs and families with children.


Donations allow local public schools to respond to the needs of their students and families, with a special focus on school readiness, literacy and mentoring.



Doing Good in the Neighborhood is the campaign that makes it easy for Duke employees to make a difference in Durham and the region through community-based philanthropy. Duke employees can donate in a variety of ways, including payroll deduction, to one or more of six giving categories.

Watch the video above and explore these pages to learn how our gifts have a great impact on projects meeting real community needs. When Duke employees give together, we have a greater impact than we could alone!
