Duke’s employee giving campaign for the community

When Duke staff and faculty give together, we are sending a collective message that we support the communities in which we work and live.

Duke Doing Good in the Neighborhood lets Duke employees make a gift in a variety of ways, including payroll deduction, to one or multiple giving categories. A total of $549,873 was raised during the 2016-17 campaign and supported 56 organizations, 12 neighborhoods, 9 schools and 4 North Carolina counties.

Explore these pages to learn how our gifts make a positive impact in our community. Through Doing Good, we fund new nonprofit projects, kindergarten readiness programs, affordable housing for local residents, and more.
