Get Involved

Doing Good in the Neighborhood offers several ways to engage co-workers and work as a team to support a good cause. If your idea for getting involved isn’t covered below, contact us at doinggood@duke.edu. We would love to hear from you!

Campaign Champions

Campaign Champions act within their departments as advocates and spokespeople for the Doing Good in the Neighborhood campaign. Champions use internal communication channels to share information about the campaign’s impact and how to donate. The role is unique in each department, depending on the time and interests of each Champion.

Campaign staff work to make the role of Campaign Champion as easy and rewarding as possible. We provide all requested materials, and we work with Champions to brainstorm how we can support their outreach to their colleagues. The goal of Campaign Champions is never to pressure their co-workers to donate, but to ensure they are aware of the campaign as a collective Duke effort.

To learn more about the roles of different Campaign Champions, to express interest in becoming a Champion, or to nominate a Champion for your department, contact us at doinggood@duke.edu.

Volunteer Opportunities

Doing Good in the Neighborhood is a way for Duke employees to make a difference together in Durham and the region. Campaign staff love to help departments connect to local schools and non-profits, and service is a great way to do that.

Whether you and your co-workers would like to be plugged in to existing volunteer opportunities, or you would like a service event tailored to your interests and logistics, we are here to help. Contact Neil Hoefs at neil.hoefs@duke.edu or (919) 668-1033 to discuss your options.
