Our Young People

Contributions support programs and interventions that set Durham's at-risk youth on a path to graduation and long-term success.

Our Neighborhoods

Donations to Supporting our Neighborhoods go to projects that promote housing, economic development and quality of life in Durham's neighborhoods, including the creation of a community garden in the West End.

Durham's Health

Donations to the Health category go, in part, to support the Walltown Neighborhood Clinic, where Durham’s uninsured may receive free and low-cost medical care.

Community Care Fund

Donations to the Community Care Fund support grants for a wide variety of local projects that promote health, academic achievement, neighborhood development and more. Last year's grants included one to Innovation4Motivation, a program that provides high-quality enrichment for middle school students during their time away from school.

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 Education, Health and Financial Stability.

Our Schools

Donations to the campaign's Schools category support innovative programs that improve outcomes for local students, teachers and families.



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!
